I stumbled apon a paragraph in python-dev about "reducing the size of
Python" for an embedded device:

In my experience, the biggest gain can be obtained by dropping the
CJK codecs (for Asian languages). That should sum up to almost 800K
(uncompressed), IIRC.

So, my question is: on Windows. where are those CJK codecs? Are they by
any chance included in the 1.867.776 bytes of python24.dll ?

Best wishes,
