FreeAmp really does have too large of a memory footprint. It is a shame
that the STL strings are such memory hogs. I think it is worth seeing how
big of an improvement his suggestion can bring. If it is not that much of
an improvement we drop it....right? If it is a big improvement we can all
hammer on it and track down any lingering issues...
Considering how late in the game Chris is jumping into the code I am
impressed by how quickly he is modifying the code and getting up to speed.
It is only natural for there to be bugs and issues when trying to make
such a large change. Let's give his idea a chance and as much support as
we can lend and see where we end up.
