      Description

      Currently the Mender-client is running with the 'urfave/cli' library, which we are quite happy with, except for its humongous size!

      The library is weighing in at 30% of the total client size, which is completely off the mark.

      There were a few original suggestions to replace it with something smaller:

      Therefore, it should probably be possible to shrink the cli-library through any number of approaches, like conditional compilation, or simple removing the parts we don't want in a fork.

      Acceptance criteria:

      • Figure out if the 'urfave/cli' library can be shrunk to an acceptable size
      • Implement the chosen solution on the client.
