What's the difference between the "Complete" and "Small" builds?

Here's what the website says:

Complete zips contain additional files like scipts, grids, language files, RBF fonts and curves
...and:

You'll actually see two versions of CHDK for each camera model. The "Complete" build includes files such as fonts, grids, scripts and languages. The "Small" build contains only the binary source code. Complete builds change less frequently than small builds, so please don't overuse our bandwidth by downloading complete builds multiple times a day.

However, it doesn't explain why I would should choose one or the other...

if you want chdk only without any optional take the small build (and i can't say why you would), otherwise just take the complete. Just take a look at the 2 .zip to compare, the CHDK core is the same.
I use the complete distro, in a someGB card hundreds of kB aren't a problem and some stuffs in the complete package are useful (first of all scripts).

You want (and almost need) the complete version. The smaller one with minimum necessary files only is mostly for upgrades to keep download server load low.
