Ah, this one. Sounds familiar.
I was also arguing that everyone should be able to do it by building own VM,
but people wanted simpler solution, so we ended up adding new option in
.ini file:


like that you don't have to recompile the VM if you need different limit.

Btw, we (pharo developers) moved pharo vm sources to github (not gitorious
not long ago, and we will continue development there [2].

Main difference is: merging .st sources with C sources,
so all VM sources now is in single repository, and no need to mess with MC
It also simplifies a lot the commit & build process.

The gitorious sources will stay, since there is not only pharo people who
using them.
