syscons options and memory use

The syscons manual page says:
"    The following options will remove some features from the syscons  
      and save kernel memory.
             This option removes mouse support in the syscons driver.  The
             mouse daemon moused(8) will fail if this option is defined.   
             option implies the SC_NO_CUTPASTE option too.

How much memory does this save (or how can I discover that)? Is it worth  
it on a 96MB PentiumII laptop?

Thanks in advance,
