Am looking at it as well.
I'll help look into this aspect too.
To be clear (since my first post seemed to go to the moderator), we will
be using this starting with MeeGo 1.2. Yes, this rather pigish memory
usage needs to be addressed. Let's focus on fixing that. I'd say there
are a number of options we can explore here to do that.
It's already upstream and in the appropriate place as far as I'm
concerned. Let's not chuck it out because on second blush there were
faults that no one expected.
