I would think the majority of TAP files are dumps from either original or 
pirate copied games. When it comes to home made software, you probably need 
more than those 5 GB to store it all since e.g. one game could appear in at 
least 5-10 different cracks and packed versions. D64 images seem more all 
purpose. They can contain both commercial software, copied software, public 
domain and own stuff. I think a majority of people who developed their own 
programs used floppy drives, so the number of TAPs with multiple but unique 
titles would be very few?
