I think 16KB may be enough for most general use.  One
way to find out for sure would be:
  - Implement your max-free limit
  - Set the limit to 8KB
  - Build a prefork MPM, set a breakpoint in the allocation
    function with gdb, and send some typical requests to the httpd
  - Keep increasing the limit until it no longer hits the
    breakpoint after the first request
