I wonder what implications page sharing via KSM has for the memory use discussion. As long as all the private libraries are built with the same compiler options, isn't there a good chance that the majority of the memory could be shared behind the scenes?

If the result of those KSM scans could be remembered between reboots, increased CPU usage should not be an issue. And if the file system supported shared chunks analogously to KSM's shared pages, disk space might not be a problem either.

Not really, it seems extremely unlikely that they actually get the code ordered the same way
and aligned at the same point within a page.
