Best border black program for Workbench

Noticed a lot of people are disabling Copper these days on the ClassicWB packs, especially with ECS machines and the new accelerators, which also disables the black Workbench border. I can add a program to make the border black when copper is disabled.

The thing is, there are many small utlities that do the same thing on Aminet. Anyone know the best one (smallest memory footprint, no compatibility issues)?

I use BorderBlank on my A1200, it's executed in the Startup-Sequence, but I run it before LoadWB, not after it like it says in the docs. In any case it works fine and it's tiny - http://aminet.net/package/util/boot/bordblnk

I use it on the A600 too, but I have it in the WBStartup drawer, which it works fine from too.

It's 208 bytes.

I use BBlank from BlizKick which I have included in a Custom Kickstart that I kick via MapRom of ACA630. Works like a charm.
Before the ACA I was using the same program as Cammy said

Yeah I use a multiple patch, Multi CX, which I think it's the cleanest.
