Well if you have an embedded system with a limited amount of flash,  
and main RAM (compared to an x86 desktop) then an allocation of that  
size does have an impact, so I was looking for ways to slim it down a  
little.  That's the main reason.  But if this is a good size even for  
embedded, then so be it.

For x86 this is a flea on a dogs back, for embedded it's a little more  
noticeable.  But not a show stopper.
