Well, I'm not too up on the requirements for X these days. It will in
all likelihood not actually even require a window manager, but I presume
that a QT app will eat some bit of memory, and I really want to avoid
swapping as much as possible. 32MB seems a tad light for that I would
have thought. Also, it suddenly occurs to me, there will be a small
MySQL DB running on the thing too. 3 or 4 simple tables, at no more than
5000 entries in each I would think.
