In all fairness, 1.6 mb is bigger than the entire Felix framework,
including the documentation.  The camel-core jar represents two-thirds
of the volume of my deployed Felix OSGI application.

Yes, the core does a lot, but how many people genuinely use all the
features and built-in components?  Not that I'm necessarily advocating
splitting it into all separate modules, since it would probably take
up more space that way, what with the extra manifests and activators
and all.

But still, even if not "bloated", I might call it "non-trivially sized".
