All the functionality added recently added about (I think) 8K on the
i386 (to 69K binary), and 6K on MIPS (~ 570K unstripped binary :)

Any further functionality such as command editing/recall and completion
will most likely have ifndef SMALL_FTP (or something like that) to keep
the size down on install media if necessary.
