Right now we're pretty monolithic, sorry. What is more
constrained in your environment? Disk or RAM? We've put
quite a bit of effort into reducing the dynamic memory
requirements with 3.2, but our disk footprint is still way
larger than it strictly needs to be. We're working towards
using more shared libraries for common components, but this
is not fully done yet. We'd appreciate help here :-)
