Oh, you need to include the read-only and static spaces too, not just
the dynamic space. The read-only space is all of the compiled code
from maxima itself (and cmucl itself, about 20 MB), and the static
space (usually about 3 MB). Hence the total usage increased to about
55 MB from 45 MB, which isn't quite so bad.
Stavros> What's the problem with autoload?
Nothing. I think that would be the preferred way, but if it's in src,
I don't really know how to get the code compiled but not also in the
loaded into core. Maxima has this weird scheme where the code is
compiled and loaded, and then loaded again from scratch before
creating a Lisp core file.
