You could try duplicating an existing layer multiple times
instead of creating new ones, so the copy-on-write code saves
you memory.  If your layer is 16x16 though, I imagine that
the per-layer thumbs are taking more memory than the layer

I think it'd still be a fair comparison if you closed the
layers dialog -- an image with 1000s of layers is probably
not expected to be managable sanely with what amounts to
a list paradigm.
