Yes, we're working on splitting ETS up and getting the dependencies 
right. We've stripped it down to 14 MB though, scipy is 12.7 MB, so its 
getting in the same ballpark. I've currently got the entire Python 
Enthought Edition down to about 90 MB spread across about 50 eggs. The 
next version will be (optionally) much leaner.
