Cocoon will drop items from its cache (least-recently-used first I think) 
when memory drops below limits specified in This is 
theoretically more efficient than dropping them whenever they get old, 
because you may not need to drop them.

I think that the default settings will not work well for all machines. The 
default settings specify wait until 60Mb is used (this appears to override 
the free memory setting), which may cause OutOfMemoryErrors after a lot of 
page accesses on machines with less than 128Mb RAM.

Maybe these configs need a rethink and documentation.
