Instead of guessing at fixed amounts, why not:
- Detect how much memory the user has.
- Pick a reasonable default in terms of percentage (say, 50%).
- Let the user change this default, also in terms of percentage.
That way, the default the Gimp ships with will work with all systems, and
also on a given system if the user dumps more memory in, the Gimp will
automagically have better performance.
Just my $0.02,
