112MB on a phone is way too much. I don't really care if it's open source or not as long as it works, it is functional and it is efficient.


Oh, for the love of God! How could I possibly make it clearer that the numbers came from a 64bit (in words, sixty four b*i*t*s) machine, which in most usage cases increase the memory consumption by a factor of 1.3x - 1.8x. (Simply compare the opcodes of i686 and amd64 and you'll understand my point)
With this in mid, a possible 32bit android port should consume 60 - 80MB of ram depending on the compiler optimizations use and the code itself. Before you shout that even 80MB is far too much both the Google Android browser and Firefox 7/mobile consume ~60-70mb on my SGS2.
