[dancer-users] Memory use of Dancer2 running under Starman

We haven't done benchmarks for that (reducing that is in the plans!) but I
can tell you the latest version of Dancer2 (0.159002) fixed a memory leak,
and the one after (0.159003) will introduce two additional memory leaks.

The first (fixed in 0.159002) we found at $work somehow. It was a very rare
situation which is why we haven't encountered it yet. The other two fixes
(slated for the next release) include fixes that we were able to test for
(and we have the tests for them in the distribution as well) but we (at
least $work) were not able to actually produce in our production or testing

Just wanna mention that, since it's in the topic, somewhat. :)
