[lively-kernel] Looking to pare down LK

Lively Kernel is way cool!
Unfortunately, it doesn't address my needs directly.
I am developing a web app and I want 2 things:
where I can hide it when I need the whole screen for the app. LK does
(most) of this.
2) the deliverable needs to load very quickly, so I need to be able to
deploy something where (at least most of LK) is out of the picture.
The app was previously written with Amber Smalltalk so depends on a
very Smalltalk-like class hierarchy, so I would want most of what is
in the base "classes" in core/lively/lang but not much more (maybe
net, definitely not morphic).
Is this doable? Is there a template for it, or a how-to?
(Actually the app is currently in Amber Smalltalk, but I'm considering
Hmm, I wonder how doable it would be to add a Smalltalk parser/editor
to edit the .st files directly. It would obviously have a different
object/class model, but could use Smalltalk syntax. Any opinion on
how difficult that would be?)
