Django Memory Use on Webfaction

For my business, I create a lot of small, low volume Django sites. One thing that has frustrated me for a while is the amount of memory these apps use.

Using a typical setup using Apache and mod_wsgi, a typical app will use about 120MB. Switching to nginx with uwsgi. I reduced memory consumption by about half.
