There are some strings that could be "emptied" now, I think. E.g., the
snake game strings, as well as the games/demos menu entries. That would
save some bytes, but perhaps it isn't enough. And maybe there are other
strings there that aren't used any more (I've been thinking about writing
a script to do the checking; I guess perl is good at the task, but I'm not
