Reduce the size of a model object so that it takes up less memory on disk. Currently, the model object is stripped down to the point that only the minimal components necessary for the predict function to work remain. Future adjustments to this function will be needed to avoid removal of model fit components to ensure it works with other downstream functions.

Print information each time an axe method is executed. Notes how much memory is released and what functions are disabled. Default is FALSE.


Any additional arguments related to axing.
