Can Magento run in less than 16Mb memory space?

Hello,

normally all my php programs, even quite intense mvc scripts that create objects for each db record operate quite happily with 8Mb as the memory setting in php - Magento, at least the demo download, requires upwards of 17Mb - is this as good as it gets, all the hosting companies I currently deal with would have a fit if I asked for such an increase, is there a way to reduce the memory footprint?  Lazy loading for instance?

Thanks, Rob

Magento will run with 16Mb but performance will depend heavily on the number of products, categories and layered navigation attributes etc.

Our benchmarks are done with 32Mb.
