It would be interesting to know how much memory (both virtual and real)
were being taken up by Mailman, your MTA, your webserver, etc....  If we
can get those kinds of numbers for your system, Carl's, the systems I have
access to, and maybe some others, then we can start to put together a
better set of recommendations based on traffic and resources.
