Not really, well not if you are writing a serious small tool anyway. In
actual fact the bigger problem if you are using the standard dynamic
link setup (which you wouldn't be I suspect) is /dev/zero.

Ditto a bigger kernel. Remember moving stuff from initramfs to the kernel
makes it less memory efficient usually as its now harder to get rid of
and not pageable later on either.
