Still quite minimal results. But unless I'm misremembering, it seems  
that the size of the application itself has grown a lot. An empty form  
with a button now results in an application of 1.8MB (Carbon/i386). I  
thought it was closer to 1.1MB the last time that I tried this  
(October last year).

Here's where the size comes from (with smart linking and stripping, no  
debug information):

__TEXT  __DATA  __OBJC  others  total
1171456	655360	0	44932	1871748
