[Mongrel] Re-map Portion of Ruby Heap Holding Optree to Save Child

I've always wondered the same thing--why does rails use so very much 
memory?  Is it possible to cut it down?
As a note I've tried some gc.c tweaks before (like changing default heap 
size allocation, etc.) and they only reduced memory along the lines of
running console normal
25MB, takes 15.5s to start
running console with gc optimized ruby
23MB, takes 13.5s to start
along those lines.  So it may well be rails' fault.  I should cross post 
this in the rails group and see if they know :)
Take care.
