I'll try to dig up some of Joe's more recent e-mails which cover some
really good ones. Also, the release announcements tend to have some
great info on beagles progress.

Especially with the most recent release, and the upcoming changes, which
is why I think its worth talking about. Using some of the practice
mentioned here:
I run beagle (with the thunderbird backend and about 10.000 mails) at
about 45 MB resident for the master process and
Debug: Helper Size: VmRSS=34.2 MB, size=3.55, 63.7
its not perfect, but its certainly far more passive then before, and
without the tbird backend, its significantly better.

I'm glad theres some interest, also, we don't hear a lot from  Forsight
and your wants/needs. Please feel free to pass on things you would like
to see in beagle, we always love the input :)
