Some of the hyphenation resources that we may load (depending on languages for which hyphenation is used) are quite big.

Currently-installed resources with their on-disk sizes:

However, it's unclear what the corresponding memory footprint is when they're loaded, as we don't appear to have any memory reporting connected to hyphenation. We should implement some kind of reporting so that we can assess the impact, and whether it is worth attempting to reduce it.

(See also bug 1487212; having actual memory reporting would help us better understand the potential benefit there.)

According to this reporter, loading the en-US hyphenation patterns (e.g. visiting, which has an example of auto-hyphenation) has a memory footprint of around 900K.

Loading the Hungarian hyphenation patterns costs around 7MB (ouch!).

Even a small resource like Portuguese or Finnish costs 32K at runtime.
