That was my initial sentiment as well. I've now done a bit of digging,
and it seems upstream chose this default since the previous default was
that memory-limit was disabled unless explicitly enabled at build time,
and they didn't want to cause breakage by enabling it. Since we've
always had the limit enabled, I belive we should stick to our 32 MB
limit and not 128 MB as upstream suggests.
