|Shouldn't we increase the default for the tile_cache_size? GIMP was shipped

I'd say go for it. We could always add a warning to users
with less memory (or even decrease it automagically in cases
where we can detect this).

|user_installation step that lets the user specify the tile_cache_size and
|the swap directory. Of course such a dialog would also have a few short
|sentences explaining the importance of these settings together with hints
|for a good choice.
I think this is an *excellent* idea.
