The vast majority of scripts are tiny utility things, and are only compiled
as mono because that became the default a year or so back. In reality, the
typical script is probably using much less than 16k.

What about using 16k for both LSL and Mono until real Mono values and
controls can be added later? This is probably closer to real memory use than
the sum of maximums would be.
