Would it be difficult to query the operating system and to automatically
set the tile cache size to some percentage (50%?) of available RAM?

Increasing the default size sounds sensible given that even most low end
computers come with at least 256MB of RAM.  I dont know about other linux
distributions but the Memory recommendations for Fedora 2 are as follows:
      Minimum for graphical: 192MB
      Recommended for graphical: 256MB
