This is a crunched binary, so space is really not a big issue (plus,
the basic set of libraries is probably some 300-400Kb, so discussing
about adding/removing components which take 2-3 KB such as date,
sleep, comcontrol, conscontrol is just pointless in my opinion;
just convenience should be enough to keep some things around).
For ipfw/natd, i admit that they might be fatter than what one might
want, but then again they might be useful in case you have to access
the outside world to grab things. What do you save by removing them ?
