[Lazarus] Large program size - 1.8 MB for empty GUI project

when is dynamic linking in mainstream Lazarus scheduled? we could spread 
the size of the LCL over a set of DLLs. Small utilities would all share 
the same DLLs, and have in their EXE file only a couple of hundred Ko.

In any case, manual dynamic linking is possible.

Best regards,
