looking at those number like:
CPU 9.3sec -> 31.5sec
MEM 389KB -> 32KB

gives me mixed feelings, it's the typical: use less memory needs more
CPU scenario.

I still believe we should start optimizing both ends and using the
--desktop and --server modes we already support but which we are not
using yet.

desktop mode would use the algorithms tuned for less memory usage (as
desktop computers usually don't have much memory and desktop
applications usually don't doing big CPU loads) like this patch does.

server mode to tune for less CPU usage but more memory usage, like the
current algorithms does.

Just my 2 eurocents.
