This seems a good way to reduce size.

One additional idea I had recently was to add a config option to turn 
off non-reentrant functions where a reentrant version exists (e.g. 
gethostbyname vs gethostbyname_r).  That's because I still believe the 
uc_malloc trick comes at a reliability cost, so I'd rather revert that 
and provide a way for people to configure out the functions using static 
data.  However, I don't know whether this is feasible, or if these 
functions are still very much in use.  What do you guys think?
