Umm.. 256KB? I wasn't aware that you could link a GTK application
that would fit into 256KB. Last 256KB machine I saw was running
MS-DOS 3.1 (not windows, dos ;) and had an 80186 chipset in it. ;)
Or did you mean 256M?

You however *should* remember that the average *user* may not have
as much memory as you do. Your best bet here is probably writing
to "whatever the 'standard' config was 3 years ago". That's the
average lifespan of a PC.
