That’s multiplied by 4.5, so I’d rather not do it, especially since it
doesn’t contribute to a core functionality of Mailutils AFAIK.

That said, the main problem here is the size of mariadb (and mysql),
which take 200–300 MiB alone (not the closure).  We can revisit this
issue when we’ve made them smaller.

How does that sound?
