The "waste" is probably negligible in most situations, since using CGI
is a waste in itself (not to mention running Windows).
Using Graphics in Delphi will incur (cause) the same kind of overhead
as using LCL/Interfaces in a Lazarus app.
(If you compile a Delphi application with no VCL dependencies you'll
notice the big difference in executable size)
