I suspect that the general rule would be that the amount of memory
available on reasonably-priced modern hardware so vastly exceeds the
neccesary RAM for storing the code of a Catalyst application that this
shouldn't be an issue.

If you were in some very wierd case where this mattered (I donno, say
you had 1 million Controller classes or something), I'm sure you could
split them up into logical chunks, put them on seperate servers, and
have a front-end divvy out the requests to appropriate segregated
