Reducing my application to a reasonable size (using QT)

Currently when I run my application the bar file is ~80MB in size due to the QT libraries.


I tried changing the bar-descriptor file to only include the libraries I need, but now it refuses to find the platform plugin.


here is the original bar-descriptor http://pastebin.com/wBG28BUS


and here is my modified version http://pastebin.com/27ex4cGT

Re: Reducing my application to a reasonable size (using QT)

What size would you consider reasonable?

(I assume you already know that this situation is very temporary, and longer term the libraries will be included in the device and apps can be much smaller again.)
