Let me offer some anecdotal evidence: When compiling C code, I have
very rareley seen the process size grow to (or above) 20M. When I let egcs
loose on my terraform program, certain modules result in gcc/egcs growing
to almost 80M in residential memory size. I would expect this to grow even
further as I add more code and I don't consider terraform to be an enspecially
big program ...since this is probably more than your *average* Linux/XWindows
capable machine is equipped with, this is something to be kept in mind ...

I am also slightly disgusted by the fact that my C++ prog is starting to
kernel compile times ... there's a big performance differnece between C and C++
compiling ... although in my experience, the bottleneck is typically the
