For me it's 8MB resident + another 10 for rep.  Together they are 37MB
including non-resident.

This can be compared to 29MB resident, 100MB total for Xorg.  Given
that one actually wants to run applications like Firefox we start
talking 100s MB resident.

So, I think sawfish has a lot of room before it starts to become a
significant memory user in a real world system.

Thanks for making and maintaining the best WM!
