Comparing bash from woody and sid, respectively:
-rwxr-xr-x root/root 511400 2002-04-08 21:07 ./bin/bash
-rwxr-xr-x root/root 677184 2006-10-22 15:55 ./bin/bash
RSS of woody's bash is 4528 kB on my system; 4888 kB for sid's bash.
So, unless you want to claim that 162 kB bigger and using 8% more memory is
"a lot", you should probably be less careless about your betting.
