You should be able to cut back on your innfeed memory usage quite a bit.
Mine are 16MB, 6MB, and 6MB.  Break out binaries into a separate innfeed
process and reduce it's max-queue-size; the default of 25 is way too long
for large binaries.  Instead, set the queue size for that innfeed to about
5.  Also make sure you're using min-queue-connection.  (I wonder if
min-queue-connection should even be an option, or if we should just always
turn it on unconditionally.)

Yeah, we really need to fix this.
