According to this logic, i should feel free to add a 5MB array of
nothing to the NetBSD/Alpha kernel, because if I did it would still be
smaller than the OSF/1 kernel i normally run on my workstation.

Of course, compared to say, some real-time kernels, the NetBSD kernel
is huge...

Keeping a system trim and avoiding bloat isn't about being smaller
than a comparable system...  You may feel _good_ of you system is
smaller than a comparable system, but that's not the point.
