Bug#166758: apt: DynamicMMap too static?

Followup-For: Bug #166758
Package: apt
Version: 0.5.4

If your sources.list has too many sources, apt will bail out during
'Reading Package Lists' phase with a "Dynamic MMap ran out of room"

This cannot be fixed by increasing a magic value (I'm guessing
APT:Cache-Limit) in apt.conf, because in the code the DynamicMMap
constructor is never passed a WorkSpace argument and the default value
of 2 MBytes is always used.

Why cannot dynamic mmap be more dynamic and increase workspace

Or at least a working apt.conf value should be provided for us crazy
users who try to have all Debian branches from at least two nearest
mirrors in our sources.list/

If "con" is the opposite of "pro", then what is the opposite of progress?
