My observations ± 500 kB for libvte-udeb, libncurses-udeb and adding
FreeMono{,Bold}.ttf.  That sounded realistic for the graphical installer
but I might have missed something.

The only patch I had to apply was adding 2 missing includes in vte.c.
But I never manage to get anything useful though...  Did you had to
apply other patches?

Upstream seemed willing to help, so they might integrate patches if we
can provide them.

(btw, I should have sent you an email way earlier, but I was feeling
DebConf energy and the "hack thrill" pushed me a little bit forward ;))
