Unfortunately it's not completely memory homogenous.

But the real problem is that maybe 1/20th of our 400 users have a good idea of 
how much RAM their process is going to use.

These are not computer scientists, sometimes we need to explain to them that 
the reason their code won't compile is because they need to build in 64-bit 
mode because their data structures are too large for 32-bit!
