This is a colocated machine, put together by the colo.  128M is actually
plenty for handling mail for 10s of people and serving webpages - if you
don't use spamassassin...  It's doing fine ever with SA now that it's
throttled some.  Each concurrent spamc takes something like 14M of RAM.

I agree with you, that's why I said "the real solution is to add RAM" in
the original post.  If the machine was in the same state as me and/or
belonged to me I would have done it long ago.
