128k Flash/64K RAM is probably OK for a version that uses only integer
operations (floating point could also be possible with optimized
versions of printf/scanf, so far I'm using Newlib's implementations)
and maybe with some internal libraries disabled (not all of them
though). If you can live without the parser, you could take this
figure even lower.
