The question is "Can you optimise it and fix the problem". If you use a
python vm and the answer is "no", how do you propose to fix the problem
when it isnt "premature"

You can optimise enormously by minimising the amount of index touched by
a search, by normal operation when not being prodded by the user to do
stuff and when updating. In all cases doing the minimal touching of
existing data will reduce the working set size, which is far more
critical than total ram usage. ie an app with a lot of resources that
sit happily on disk all day is a lot better than one that keeps touching
them and keeping them in ram
