"Bloat" is increased size or less performance for features that are not useful or even
wanted. "Bloat" is not increased size or less performance per se. There also haven't been
any statements that coreutils does a bad job in performance.
So what, useful features in trade for more disk space? Hell yeah, hand me a copy of
coreutils. Minimal features for little disk space? Sure, Busybox.
Next time someone shouts "bloat", please give an explanation for the "what is actually
unnecessary" part as well.
