[IronPython] Controling DLR/IronPython Memory Size

I am developing a C# app and considering to embed IronPython scripting.
Using TaskManager, I have noticed that 

- the minimal C# ConsoleApp that includes DLR and IronPython is 8.7MB in RAM
- while the minimal C# ConsoleApp that does not include DLR and IronPython
is only 1.5MB in RAM	

Unfortunately extra 7MB in RAM is too much to justify scripting. Is there
any idea what this 7MB is used for? And more importantly, does anyone know
how to reduce the RAM size?
