for information, erlrt "hello world" il a 1.4Mb shell script.
it does not require anything, it does not download anything.

erlrt containing mnesia is a 1.6Mb shell script.
including the full ejabberd directory (from sources) will create a 
4.4Mb shell script.

for now erlrt installs on disc (ramdisk support will be added soon)
I will add a simple utility that will allow users to install 
dependencies they need,
e.g.: erlrt:install(mnesia)  will download mnesia archive and install 
into erlrt directory.
