Shrinking kernel source

I was shocked to see the size of the latest linux kernel source
tarball - 2.6.10 is ~200MB unzipped !
Has anyone got a little script that will let me nicely strip down the
kernel source tree to remove weird bits that aren't normally needed,
such as arch-dependent stuff, scsi stuff, docs etc., to save me disk
space. I appreciate that "normally" is a bit vague.
