[webkit-dev] memory consumption

Hi all,

I'd like to ask you whether the memory consumption of the JS engine is 
of importance for you or does performance have higher priority? I'm 
asking this since we are keeping non-PC use of WebKit in mind as well, 
but we found in the newest version of the RegisterFile that it's memory 
consumption is quite high by default: ~8megs in a 32bit system and 
~16megs in a 64bit system. (Since DefaultCapacity = 2 * 1024 * 1024, and 
DefaultMaxGlobals = 8 * 1024.) Hitherto (in older revisions), it grew 
incrementally, as needed.

Did I miss something?
