Is there information available anywhere on the required resources? Specifically:

1) How much space does the compiled code require? Can conditional compilation be used to omit unused features?

2) What is the overhead for the various data structures?

I'm thinking that it might be interesting to use this on very limited environments (PIC microcontrollers for example) where every byte matters.

Conditional compilation can be quite certainly used. The best way to find out the space requirements is to try out some of the examples provided. I cannot give the overhead exactly, but it can be read from the source with not too much effort. Send an email to tanel.tammet at gmail.com if you need help with that. In broad terms, we have been very careful with using memory, both for the reasons you state and the reason of getting more bang from the cache.
