Indeed. When we (KiBi, Chris and I) discussed maintaining busybox at
DebConf, such size concerns were on the list of things to keep in mind.
For that reason we will enable more applets upon justified request only.

About that particular issue I'd really like to avoid a per-architecture
switch in busybox. It adds complexity and works around a problem
instead of solving it. So please take this to gcc first unless you've
already done so. And let us know if you get the impression this won't
get fixed soon-ish - breaking an architecture still beats packaging
