	Well - the code size of the libraries can be dramatically reduced by
stripping them - if that is the problem,

	What would be much more useful would be for you to use a tool like
memprof or quantify and see where all the memory is being allocated, and
why it's hanging around not being freed, and if there's anything easy we
can do about it.

	Hopefully you'll find some fairly low hanging fruit in there somewhere,
send a more in-depth memory analysis for something really small and
silly that shouldn't use much space like an applet eg.
