Towards A Tinier Federation

This idea has been kicking around in my head for a while that I really don't need all the overhead of GNU social. It's not exactly the heaviest weight web app in the world but, like and before it, is a single-user instance. Running on the assumption that there is only one user I feel like quite a bit could be simplified and cut back, among my own little breaking choices. Yes, I know Social has a single user mode

What I want to keep

Basically, the bare minimum.

What I want to kill

What might stay

I have another post to make, so I'm pushing this one out a little bit premature. I intended this to be a living post anyway so it's hardly the world's biggest deal. I'm still working out what I want from this.
