For example, Android devices are much more strict wrt memory management
policy, and they have ``overcommit'' turned off, so Emacs has a chance
to signal out-of-memory errors.

Someone using the Android port reported that his Emacs reliably ran out
of memory after a couple of minutes of editing Org files.  It turns out
that his `gc-cons-threshold' was 512 MB!
