Not significantly. Small enough to be much less likely to run out of 
memory even with multiple 2-page handlers installed, but certainly not 
small enough to allow it to run in 16K, for example.

The loader map says:
  70000  = 1ST FREE LOCATION

That means that it uses up all of 28K (with FRTS) without any device 
drivers installed. If it was possible to bum another couple of pages it 
might be possible to get it to work with 28K, but currently it won't. 
32K is required for it to work. As always with trying to make code more 
compact, the more times you go back to try to shrink things the harder 
it gets. I haven't tried for several years, however.
