Nothing new to add except to second the experience.  We went right to 768MB 
and recently upgraded to 7.5 -- I've got four full feeds coming in though 
three of those are in a single group so not sure how that affects rpd's 
memory usage but we've got about 280M used i think.  We're using a total of 
about 600MB of the 768MB.
