As you are in a position to judge that, you are more than welcome to do 
better. :-)

The truth is that you can safely be expected/assumed to be using virtual 
memory. So the question that really matters is, how much memory is actively 
being used and not how much memory is inactive and dead on your swap disk 

The waste is purely in address space so to say, not performance.
