Why is Erlang so large?

The tar.gz file for the latest Open Source Erlang release is close to 7 
megabytes.  Why so large?  7 MB of zipped source code is _huge_.

This is more for curiosity's sake than a real complaint :) though it 
would be nice to have a smaller core download, with add-ons for mnesia 
and such.
