Ok, without optimizing much, just packaging it up a little bit, I've
managed to minimize python2.5 (supercomplete set) to less than 10MB.

If anyone is interested, I can try to build an even smaller version of
python that is useful.

I'd second also the idea to make the embedded JavaScript available for
scripting, which would be a nice language too.
