Well, just a few days ago, I managed to stop a Change that would have almost
doubled Python 3's size wherever both the python3 executable and the
libpython3 library are needed, and to point out an alternative (though Jan
Kratochvil beat me to it by ~64 minutes) that brings the same performance
gain without the size increase (-fno-semantic-interposition).
I am constantly trying to fight bloat, but it is usually a political rather
than a technical fight. And the typical outcome (see, e.g., MiniDebugInfo)
is where my "defeatist attitude" comes from.

I'm sorry but how exactly did you manage to 'stop' the change? All you did was
started shouting about the size increase and then proposed something already mentioned
beforehand in the thread.
Your feedback was NOT helpful and it basically pushed people away from wanting to
participate to the thread. Luckily sorting through the useful info was possible but still
frustrating in between your rants.
We heard the feedback and did a lot of experimentation and benchmarking with a ton of
different options so I really can't fathom how you are taking credit for something
that others invested so much time in.
