A udeb is an interesting idea.

However, the binary is rather big (4.5Meg if I read this correctly):

-rwxr-xr-x root/root   4496772 2002-12-28 12:10:56 ./usr/bin/dar

which is stripped and dynamically linked.

Are there any guidelines on how big the contents of a udeb can be
before it is considered too big?

It might be possible to reduce this size, I don't know. It is
C++ code.
