Quite a bit.  It's been updated slightly for 2014, but here's the
general idea:

It essentially takes out all of the docs and source stuff but 
leaves the full texmf content.  It could almost surely be stripped
down quite a bit more and still make a mostly-fully-functional
texlive package, but not being terribly familiar with exactly 
what qualifies as necessary, I went this route (it's the same
approach I used with 2013).
