Something like that; if you spawn an image to do a job it doesn’t need to have that code in it at spawn-time, just enough to know how to load it. Which means your ‘master control program’ doesn’t need to be large either.

For example, Sista could spawn an image to do its optimising work and return the results to the ‘real’ image.
