Mainly because I didn't think that this would work. It appears to work, 
The page now loads with all contrib modules from HEAD (minus the ones I 
mentioned earlier) with the dreaded 8M memory limit.

It is still an evil hack, though. The contrib modules violating the code 
conventions could be fixed, but those that call some internal functions 
to beautify their help output could not.
