I tend to have quite a few applications open and thus exceed the 256 MB
of actual RAM regularely, figures into the high 300's are no exeption.
For desktops this is in general workable, but due to the slow harddisks
found in laptops it can get very annoying to swap in. In that case 10 MB
extra can make quite a difference (background info).
The fact that you consider the optimization is great for now, thanks for
