[revServer] process timeout issue

And, in my experience, most of both the end-users and Google don't like to wait more than 6-8 seconds for an acceptable page load in response to any request send to a production state n-tier app. 

About the question of the 64Mb memory limit, i just can't understand what kind of n-tier app request would need to use such an among of RAM ?!! Any explainations about such kind of needs in the Rodeo Env. would probably help us to purpose alternative ways to go...

I builded lots of PHP3/4/5 (+ Rev) n-tiers apps over the 15 last years and my httpd + php.ini configs went always configured to limit the requests timout in betwin 30-60 seconds and the among of RAM allowed to each PHP request to 2-4 Mb.

Hope this can help.

Best, Pierre
