I have nearly 100 projects, many with multiple modules, and am not done
adding, yet. It does really eat up memory like crazy but I haven't heard a
solution to it. The fact is that some sites, especially social networking
ones, use a lot of modules. Most of them are fairly small but needed. Would
combining the smaller modules into one big one help any? Or would that still
use the same amount of memory?
