I'm in favor of Ingo's approach. I don't think it is a good idea to
hardcode assumptions of what is sufficient memory size into rules files;
that's the kind of thing that is best done centrally.

(Also, any rules file snippet should be as simple as possible. Otherwise
fixing it everywhere when a bug is found is going to be tedious.)
