It is smaller than 32MB. We did that without "breaking a sweat."
Much smaller is achievable. I think that w/o much work, Bryan had
shrunk us to a 13MB md-image. That would not boot, and we put it aside.
I think we needed to set a larger NKPTP.
We are keen on running on very, very cheap, Flash ROM-limited systems
in the future.
