Yes, that would reduce the overall memory footprint at
the expense of the protocol overhead becomes even
greater and the performance even worse.

Yes, but this really is not a case of "expensive"
operation that I need to out source to another process
but more about the possibility of having the whole
process blocked by one case in 100(or 1000). If it is
8/10 that it is going to be time-consuming, of course
the overhead becomes a non-issue.
