Hello Zbigniew,

To compare with Debian: systemd: 17.5 MB, s-container 2.4 MB, udev 6.6
MB, so this is comparable.

However, the gain through the extra dependencies is nontrivial: On a
minimal system, installing systemd-container pulls in some 20 extra
packages (libldap, sasl2-modules, libkrb5, libssh, ca-certificates
etc.) and will take an extra 18.3 MB space. s-journal-remote by itself
is an extra 16.7 MB; but there's of course a lot of overlap with
s-container, installing both together are +19.3 MB.
