Another type of bounty

It would be very good to have a bounty that would pay 100$ to anyone who would find and implement a way to reduce memory use of a fully running Debian Linux + Gnome system (optionally, with all Gnome apps loaded) by one megabyte (as indicated by RAM used in a swapless system - (cache+buffers)) in a way that does not reduce functionality or heavily compromise runtime speed and would be accepted into upstream Gnome.

We need sponsors! That would be one great long term investment in Desktop Linux.
