That seems rather retarded...

Ouch.  So its that libslang itself should be reduced, and based on
that, the usage in libnewt should be reduced?

Kinda sounds like an ordering problem....

Anyhow, I wonder if we should perhaps have a special libslang which we
use for boot-floppies which is already pre-stripped?  I wonder how
doable that is.

How many bytes are needed for alpha, exactly?
