MC is a 550k file manager, with tons of external features from libc,
libgpm and libncurses.

If you want a 64k file manager, feel free to rewrite it from scratch in
assembly.  C is just not the language to get those savings.

And if you dont like Pavel's position, you can fork the code base, and
have your e733T file manager, we in the free software world enable
everyone to do this.
