Yeah: I wish speed.pypy.org also compared memory use. Admittedly, that's more complicated.

It does not for a very trivial reason - we lack benchmarks that have some reasonable memory impact. Right now most benchmarks would measure interpreter size, which is slightly boring

Hm, I agree about having benchmarks with memory impact is more compelling, but wouldn't it be at least interesting to show the memory impact as it is right now? (i.e., how much more memory does PyPy need?)
