Post Tuning PIE for performance

PIE has saved the day and we've got rounded corners working perfectly in IE7 & 8! However, we're having a problem getting PIE approved for production because of it's size. Since we only require the rounded corners functionality, is there anyway to reduce the size of the HTC file? I'd love to hear any suggestions :)

One big change that I've been working on for beta6 that doesn't have a ticket in GitHub is splitting PIE into multiple files... becomes a very small loader stub file, which goes out and fetches the other file(s) containing only the logic needed for the current browser (and maybe only the logic for certain needed features). Those secondary logic files will be hosted on a CDN by default (assuming I can find a suitable CDN) which will allow the bulk of the download to be served from a fast location with gzip enabled, something not all users are currently able to do themselves. There will also be an option to specify a custom location if someone doesn't want to use the CDN. Between the pared-down logic files (no need to serve IE6-8 code to IE9 users) and the fast CDN delivery, this should result in a pretty decent decrease in download time even with the extra HTTP request.

PIE needs more community support persons! Time is money, which means you can fund PIE development by answering support questions.
