Good day,

I added a new data set to a package I develop and there is the warning:

* checking data for ASCII and uncompressed saves ... WARNING
  Note: significantly better compression could be obtained
        by using R CMD build --resave-data
               old_size new_size compress
  asthma.RData    715Kb    484Kb    bzip2

Should I ignore it or save it again with compression? The 231 Kb reduction in file size seems insignificant.
