Despite the name "CSound", IIRC most of the grunt-work in CSound 5 is 
done in Python, not C.

In any event, I think just for the sake of doing it, I'm going to build 
a CCRMA virtual machine and see how big it is with the whole tool chain 
installed. It would be useless for real time, but it's very easy to do:

1. Install the free VMware Server.
2. Build a virtual machine
3. Install the right version of Fedora
4. Install CCRMA
5. Make a tarball from the directory. That part takes forever, but if 
you're going to be shipping the thing around on the net, you have to do 
that. Actually, rather than a tarball, I usually make a ZIP archive for 
the Windows folks, since Linux has "unzip" available.
