The GCVS and NSV (and supplement) and Taichi Kato's newvar.cat are all
available as gzip now and in that form are 1 - 6MB downloads each.
They're also fairly frequently updated and in need of redownloading
(every few months, or less).
Other catalogues tend to split into two groups, either a few meg or far
less gzipped (most are available for download in gzip form) or a CD's
worth, with little in the middle, so as you say, probably software only.
