The rumored XF23mm f/2 - how small do you think they can make it?

Considering the fact that the 35mm f/2 is not that much smaller than its f/1.4 sibling, how likely is it that Fuji can make the rumored 23mm f/2 a lot smaller than the XF23mm f/1.4?

I have only the XF18-55mm for now, which is a nice lens, but I'd like a compact walkabout lens that is wider than 35mm and preferably shorter in physical size than the 35mm f/2.

The XF27mm is indeed an option - and it's cheap second hand - due to its size, but the missing aperture ring ... It makes it seem a little toy-like.

So what do you think - can we expect the 23mm f/2 to be really compact? Would there be technicalities that would limit how small it could get? Something approaching the 18mm in size and with the qualities of the 35mm f/2 - yes, please!
