Yeah, so? On this iBook it shows as a 42KB module (I load it at boot).
sheep_net is ~ 5KB. That's really the only way to reliably run MoL without
having to become root to load the module the first time after boot. It's
not eating a significant amount of memory, so having it loaded shouldn't
be a big issue.

If you're using the debs already, it's sort of surprising someone hasn't
included an init script to invoke 'startmol --loadonly' during boot, to
avert just this kind of situation...
