MojoMojo, which is probably the most complex Catalyst application,
needs 60-90MB per FastCGI child, and has been running fine (8MB
swapped) on my Linode with 360MB RAM and PostgreSQL 8.3 running on it.
I only had RAM issues with MojoMojo once, when it leaked memory due to
repeatedly instantiating a Syntax::Highlight::Engine::Kate object
which apparently wasn't completely garbage collected when it went out
of scope.  Moving that initialization where it got executed only once,
solved the problem.
