I believe the "bloat" is that you have to install a full Apache stack
on the server in order to manage it with ebox, which is about as bad
as installing a full X system on a server (if it isn't needed).  If
you are running a webserver, of course Apache is great, but for a file
server or a DNS server, etc, it is adding unnecessary complexity,
vulnerabilities, and resource usage.  Webmin's internal webserver is
much much better in this regard.
