[Nano-devel] making tiny nano tinier

Hi all,

I was surprised to find that '--enable-tiny' does not disable the
syntax highlighting/colouring code, which is quite a big chunk.
(Adding '--disable-color' makes a tiny nano about 14% smaller.)

In the far past, colour and nanorc and multiple buffers were not
enabled by default.  So you would do --enable-tiny to make nano
even more basic, or you would --enable-nanorc, --enable-color,
and --enable-multibuffer to add even more features.

But nowadays, wouldn't it make sense to let --enable-tiny disable
*all* features by default, also colour, nanorc and multiple buffers?
Which one can then override with selected --enable-something for
wanted features?
