yeah, but people porting SRE to small platforms can switch off
inlining completely.  if I do that on windows, the resulting DLL
is less than 20k.

which is pretty okay, I think, if you consider that the DLL contains
two separate regular expression engines, a scanner framework, and
lots of other stuff...
