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?
