Maybe Ed went a little too far about this.

of course I do not request immediate magical memory solution that would 
enable me to generate my pdf on a cell phone :)

I have read in this list that some people have 200+ pages documents with 
low memory footprint (around 20-50 Mo). I just want to know if someone 
could give me any hints of achieving a nice FOP generation within 128 Mo 
knowing that I am using page sequences under 15 pages.

Thanks in advance.

As for me, the speed of FOP is not an issue. The memory would not be an 
issue if I had not a physical limit of 128Mo for now (too many units involved).
