Don't take the "bloat" meme too far. Not all large
 programs are bad and not all small programs are
 good. Vim is a great editor, it is large because
 editing is a pretty comprehensive activity. You
 couldn't fit the functionality of vim in a smaller
 package and I don't think you could build it out of
 separate Unix-y pieces.

You can also compile out a lot of the bloat
 features like the terminal emulator.
