Granted it isn't a huge monster (yet; size below) so use your own judgement;
I won't be upset either way. I should note that a well respected developer
recently stated (on l-k) the following about making things unconditional:

There are those of us trying to stuff Linux into embedded devices
who if anything want more configuration options not people taking
stuff out.

:-)

Same person went on to suggest:

What I'd much rather see if this is an issue is:

bool 'Do you want to customise for a very small system'

which auto enables all the random small stuff if you say no, and goes
much deeper into options if you say yes.

...an idea I like, but probably not appropriate for 2.4 - so perhaps I'll
work on a CONFIG_TINY for 2.5 if it is generally accepted as an ok plan.

Paul.
