Exactly this is what scares away a lot of people. It sounds
way too big. Where is the one small file?
  "Where I can just get started, once I like it I read the docs"
and so on, that is at least what lets the people use jQuery ...

No doubt that once people invest some time they can
be convinced that dojo can also be the tiny
one file library, but that's the initial hurdle ...

Just my 2 cents
