Possibly we need a design.txt under docs with this kind of design notes.  Also 
a few hints on how to write small code, and a few obvious low hanging fruit 
when attempting to busyboxify an existing applet.  (Of course I lean towards 
just writing a clean minimalistic implementation based on a clear idea of 
what it should do.  Optimizing after the fact is usually harder than starting 
small and staying there.)

Steve Ballmer: Innovation!  Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word.
I do not think it means what you think it means.
