instead of increasing the memory limit, I'd like to see us  
investigate how we can reduce the memory requirements of the locale  
module's parser.

I haven't looked at the code, but using explicit unset()s might be  
enough to reduce memory usage.  Unsetting a variable will free its  
memory!  Not sure memory is freed when a variable is overwritten or  
when a local variable goes out of scope when method execution returns  
to its caller.  It is certainly worth exploring ...
