Some more ideas/goals:
* PAM-mify at least the essential authentication programs (passwd, su,...)
  and preferably all programs that require authentication (POP clients, 
  webservers, ...).

* Link shared libraries themselves against other shared libs, instead of
  including their code static (e.g. as current S-Lang already does); this
  can reduce memory use.
  See H.J. Lu's "ELF: From The Programmer's Perspective"
  for details.
