I downloaded the actual SME speller and it seems that the real numbers are
slightly better:

VmRSS:     62960 kB
VmData:    66240 kB

Looks pretty good. If the error model could be improved and optimized a
bit and if someone finds a way to make the HFST lookup slightly faster it
seems (to me at least) that the major issues would be solved.
