The code for creating the new fonts (StrikeFont class category 'dejaVu 
font data') uses 400kb. The fonts themselves use another 400kb. You can 
check this by evaluating
    StrikeFont allInstances do: [ :f | f setGlyphsDepthAtMost: 1 ]
and saving the image (perhaps with a different name!).

So, if you're looking for 6Mb, there must be something else...
