Re: The hall of bloat

Mark, very interesting information.  I saw your bug report in b.g.o

Since this fix was in ORBit2, I suppose that many others apps will
benefit from this improvement, right?.  If so, which ones?.

Reading your little chat with the kernel guys it seems that there is
little benefit (or none) in reducing VM Size, why is that?

Besides, I'd like to know if there have been some progress about the
memory reduction effort, it seems a bit quiet.  Any way I think G2.12
will be great.
