Maybe :). How do we define "early enough"? Hours or days?
I have let it run for hours a couple times without any memory
being released.
I don't want to criticize, but believe it's best to report what I see,
which is apparently similar to what others see.
This is all unscientific and I'd be happy to be shown I was wrong.

How about we agree on a common set of probes and statistic
gathering methods and only report the same set of measurements?
To make it comparable.

I started to wonder about emacs memory usage when on Linux it
consumed 90 to 100 megs. I could hardly believe my eyes, having just
edited a couple small source files.
