The ability to load minimal with the possibility of expanding as needed would be wonderful!

I'm wondering if we should try to produce a really trimmed-down "lite" version of Jmol -- a very very minimal core set of functionality that could have better load performance on mobile devices for very basic tasks.

Maybe just

no text
no math (just simple "Rasmol-like" script commands)
just XYZ/MOL file reading

(basically a ChemDoodle-HTML5-only-like level of capability)

What would be a reasonable goal for code size?


(I think I could make it to automatically load additional functionality as needed.)
