It's more than 1MB with all the images. For many places around
the world, especially in an international context, that's still
a lot. I think we should put a little warning and a link to
the index-only version whenever we link to this tutorial.

Of course, a much better solution would be to use SVG for the
slides, that would reduce the bandwidth dramatically and have
other nice side-effects (e.g. accesssibility).
