You didn't quote the fact that my app had about 40/50 modules (not 
counting external modules like Class::DBI, etc.).

Also, while I haven't done explicit tests about it, apache configuration 
might have an impact on process size.
A hint that this could apply to my case is the fact that running the 
same app with the catalyst test server took much less memory (30/40 MB 
if I recall correctly).

Anyway, as I said I don't have the code anymore and unfortunately I 
don't recall the numbers involved exactly enough to prove something.

Unless I do some (fresh) tests, I can't provide any more (euro)cents to 
this thread. I hope I'll have time to.
