[OSM-dev] RAILS memory leaks

running Rails (repeated same map?bbox calls) on rexml instead of ruby-libxml approximately halves the memory leaks - yes, rexml leaks also :(. if you omit only the xml output step, memory use stabilises.
well, that's afaict, but i'm no ruby expert. i posted this to rails forum, but either the question is too dumb or no-one else knows nothing neither: http://railsforum.com/viewtopic.php?id=5714
i guess there's a few ways forward:
1 - as now, just restart server processes every so often
2 - roll our own ruby xml output (prob. not as quick as libxml)
3 - move to json output as preferred (assuming json impl doesn't leak)
4 - go java/perl/python*
5 - go native
6 - give up and go home
*insert doctrine here
let me know any suggestions. as reflected in order of the list, i'm tempted to shelve this at this point.
