I think (assuming you're running under Windows) that it's due to their
implementation of windowing stuff (i.e. 24-bit compositing for every
face), not the core interpreter and data. Maybe /Face will give us a
really lightweight GUI, though I'm not holding my breath. I guess I
haven't been too concerned, even though I would love for it to be
lower myself; other things are more important to me.
