regardless of the size issue; you should really not start any new
projects based on 2.4 kernels; they are in deep deep maintenance mode
for now, but it's unclear how long they will be (I suppose as long as
people keep sending patches), especially complex security issues should
worry people ;)

2.6 is actively maintained and will be for quite some time :)
