How do I reduce size of C:\WINDOWS\WINSXS folder?

My winsxs folder reaches some 15GB in size - I understand it contains old versions of system libraries, but it is somehow getting out of control. I know about msizap g!, but this is of no help.
How to reduce size of winsxs without doing harm to applications?
