You're memory is working fine, but I don't think the way eggs are used
The measurements that supported that performance assertion were made
by putting the standard library in a single ZIP, and using that.
I don't have measurements handy, but I recall being told by someone
who did that using a *lot* of separate ZIP files wasn't as effective.
