I'm trying to run mailman 2.1.8 on a system with only 32 MB RAM (and 
~100 MB swap).

However, it fails to start - the system swaps very heavily, and then 
mailman gets killed by the kernel.

Without mailman started, the system uses about 12 MB RAM.

What are the minimal memory requirements for mailman (~1 post a day)?

Is it possible to minimize the memory usage by only running some parts 
of mailman (i.e., I only want the archive be viewable via the web
