Approximately zero. :-)

The overlay tiles with the labels are rendered on the fly and only kept very
short term in memcached. There is some overhead due to extra indexes in the
database to allow the fast rendering, but thats probably negligable.

This map doesn't use the normal tile stack. For details see
