It might just be that documentation-building could stand some more 


Or perhaps some PLaneT code is doing something like sucking a file into 
memory.  (Last year, I reimplemented some of the HTTP functionality to, 
among other things, get rid of at least one place where big-file-sucking 
happens, but I don't think that particular functionality is involved in 
PLaneT installs.)
