yes. But keeping in mind that other applets take < 10MB shared + private

Share with which other processes ? I'm very curious about this. And as i
explained, i did a lot of python, and i don't know how reduce memory
usage (especially how to reduce private memory usage). So i think it's
very unlikely to happen.

no inclusion of VM-based/high-memory-consumption program for
long-running application.

No. But VM-based languages are problematic. It's OK to run 1 or 2 VM on
your desktop for real applications. But i can't think about running 10
VM. But even if deskbar-applet was written in C, if its memory usage was
22MB, i would be against. The problem is high memory consumption. The
cause is the implementation.

"waste" :)

come on : open gnome-system-monitor / top and sort by resident memory
usage :)
