Yes, but *other* than that, is there any advantage?  I'd expect if someone
submitted a patch that split mzscheme into library+startup binary, it would
get a fair hearing, but what's the motivation?  The lib isn't likely to be
that much smaller, is it?  It would still need all the .zo files with it.

Just checking the obvious: you are using compiled modules?  (.zo files)
Sorry if you already said that.  Otherwise, I'll just boggle and wonder what
