[Catalyst] How to reduce the memory footprint?

Right, nprocs=3D5

I thought 100M RES/300M VIRT meanst 100M per process, and 300M shard among
perl processes.

I don't have many other processes running on the box. If I turn off
catalyst, I use less than 250MB or memory. With Catalyst, I'm over 800MB
with some occasional swapping.
