Let me see if I have got this bit, scms are not allowed to have many dependencies except
python2.7.scm, python3.2.scm, gtk2.scm, gtk3.scm, qt4.scm (if and when it materializes). (and maybe perl)
a) Pretend the user has a low spec machine, I have 2G of RAM so its not me altho I admit to being low species (joke)
b) user loads (if available) apps 1 and 2 where both apps 1 and 2 enclose the exact same dependency
I am guessing that doing so, ----- means the low spec user has more RAM used than loading (if available) the TCZ similar feature packages because the tczs would use shared libs etc.
Do you agree to this theory?
I was thinking of attempting to build one or more scms, but no longer sure what the benefit is.
Feel free to correct my thinking.
Originally I thought it was a good design for low spec users to free up RAM. I am now thinking they would have to have a crystal ball to guess if a certain package might lock up their machines.
(2) Maybe the downstream maintainer, if you think it helps, would offer in the info file, an estimate of RAM used
by measuring RAM used before and after loading having the terminal already loaded etc.
