[wp-hackers] WP Memory usage

I've always wondered if some of the performance issues on heavy WP 
installations could be alleviated with some aggressive memory 'debugging' of 
the codebase...

The general answer is, yes, I've seen many a WP install pass the 8MB mark --  
and I haven't a clue why in some cases. ;)
