Were you having problems with RAM usage when playing MP3?
Or are you just playing with busybox config?

If you really have a RAM problem, then vi is the tool to remove from busybox:

msh uses 37512 bytes.
vi uses 22144 bytes.
rm uses 292 bytes.
cp uses 320 bytes.
mv uses 804 bytes.
(This ignores libbb size, but you get the idea).
