Yes, we do. In particular the dynamic memory use is
something I've been looking at deeply in the last weeks.

You can get rid of librpc by sticking with 3.0.24. It is
very likely that with the move to PIDL we will gain smbd
binary footprint in the future, but we have to weigh this
against code maintainability.

Yes, this does cost half a meg of disk space, but it
definitely does not cost this 500k per smbd.

Much more important than static text size is the heap usage,
and by a change I committed to tdb we now save about 250k
heap memory per smbd compared to 3.0.24. This is *MUCH* more
important than saving 500k disk space, at least from our
point of view.
