Given that Mongoose claims to be around 40KB (ie not entirely
featherweight), what are you hoping to gain by including it within
dnsmasq?  I highly doubt that you will do better than increase the size
of the dnsmasq binary by 39.99Kb?

On an more "nosey" aside - what are your requirements that saving 250KB
(say by not using nginx) or saving a few KB by including in dnsmasq, is
a useful saving? Is this a very compact embedded system you are
building? If so, presumably you already include busybox - did you look
at the microwebserver included in that?

Always interested in other peoples projects!

Good luck
