that amount of memory use doesn't seem excessive to me. I've had 250+MB
per process before for larger apps.

If you have only that much memory (~1G) available, do you really need to
be running 5 procs? Why not 2 or 3? If you run into bottlenecks with 3
preforked processes on your current hw, you'll need to be looking at
upgrading your hardware anyway.
