	Well - it comes down to nautilus being easily able to consume your
entire memory; I think when I added the field we bumped it anyway from
it's original. I suppose it would be better to have no limit there, and
have a 'maximum icon cache size' or something - such that we can try and
stop Nautilus from getting in the way of the OOM killer on huge

	Have a poke at the icon factory code to see how hard it would be to
keep a running total of the pixels we're storing internally, and have
some sane fallback to cap it [ prolly only really applicable to
thumbnails I suppose ].
