While you can certainly reduce the size of Emacs, you'll get the most
benefit if you don't have to restart Emacs all the time.  If you have
multiple connections to that machine (ie, multiple telnets), I'd
suggest leaving Emacs running all the time in one window and running
other apps in the other.  Set your editor to "emacsclient" and it'll
load files in the running Emacs.

If you can only have one connection to the machine, look into
"screen", which can let you switch between running apps on one
connection.  (As well as allowing you to reconnect if you lose your
connection, and other things.)
