On my Linux machine I can checkout Subversion trunk using serf and the
memory used by the process (as reported by top) is about 150MB.  Neon
uses slightly less memory, about 130MB. I'm using Subversion r1024287,
serf 0.7.0, and apr 1.2.12.

Does the problem occur with one big file?  A hundred small files in
one directory?  A hundred nested directories with no files?  With
http-compression?  Over https?
