#3 Recyclers, Exceptions

Since mozilla usually is not the only thing running in the system it is important to use recyclers only when they really have huge benefits .

In other cases it would be best to return as much memory as possible back to the system.

Re: exceptions:

I'd prefer mozilla not to use exceptions. Code generated by gcc seems much better/smaller when they are not used. Has anyone tried to compile mozilla with -fno-exceptions (and possibly with -fno-rtti)?
