I know that the latest release of NXT-G includes a special import for 
custom blocks ( like those provided by sensor vendors) .  Weren't 
mini-blocks just early customized blocks mirroring existing NXT-G 
functions but with a smaller memory footprint?   If so then would  they 
still be useful in NXT-g 1.1 which as improved the overall memory 
footprint of programs?
