Nevertheless, I would like to understand how Unix can manage to have a Python 3.4.3 binary at 4kb. Does that *really* have no external dependencies (other than the C library)? Are we really comparing like with like here?
I don't know what Donald was looking at, but I'm not seeing anything close to that 4k figure here. (Maybe he's on OS X, where framework builds have a "stub" executable that just execs the real one?)
On my Ubuntu Trusty system, the system Python 3.4 executable is 3.9M, and the one I compiled myself from source, without any special options, is almost 12M. (Not really sure what accounts for that difference - Ubuntu system Python uses shared libraries for more stuff?)

The problem is I'm an idiot and did du -h against ``which python``, which of course resolved to the symlink of python that points to python3.4. The real executable on my OSX box is 2.6M (built using pyenv).
