You mean smaller on diskspace? There is a reason why Emacs is much bigger than 
VIM. For example, if you hooked by some crappy code, you can run "Doctor" and 
tell him what you think about all of that and dispose your nervous stress. ;) 
But you can't do it in vim. :P

Superior... I use Emacs (actually XEmacs) for not too short time and really no 
problem with adding a new feature or so.
