TWM is huge. No, seriously.
I did a round up of minimalist Window Managers a few years
ago . The published version isn't as readable as the
one I sent to them <shrugs> , but the table on the last
page shows the RAM usage of the featured WMs. Note that
evilwm only uses 0.1MB :)
Alternatively you could replace the X-Windows System with
something much smaller 
 Bitter writers fo a lot of shrugging, but editors are
a lot more bitter: after all they have to talk to all
of the writers :-/
