I don't know how to determine how much of that 2988 is actually used
by other apps --- I expect a lot of it is, and in any case I don't
have control or even visibility into what those apps need because I
have a lot of third party developers using the platform.
But there's also 1.9MB that is *not* shared by other apps, and it
seems excessive to me. That won't get reduced by trimming libc or
statically linking ntpd. Is there any way I can cut this down to
something more respectable?
