SBU will probably not work with low memory (was Re: Collecting SBUs now)

Hi, just a short note on the SBU.
A machine with low memory (=<64MB) will probably have much greater variance in
the SBU between small packages and big ones, for example on a otherwise
similar machine bash may take (purely making up numbers) 1 min and glibc
takes 30 on the one with much memory, but takes 2 hours on the one with low
The reason should be obvious, the bash compile needs less (physical) memory,
so it will always fit, but glibc has to be swapped out.
Might be that I'm totaly wrong.
This althogh should not be an argument against SBU's, just a point to keep in
mind when doing the averages.
