So don't worry about the 100K for Linux/x86 unless you just want to
test that -fno-inline (or whatever) is passed from the Setup file to
the Makefile without makesetup barfing on it. (Not unusual for less
common flags, but I think -f* is passed along.)

20K -- 40K I'm not worried about. I'm less worried about the people
with *no* RAM, who will run into problems before they try to start
python, than about the guys with only a little RAM (say, 128MB ;).
