I assume so.
I just tried it out, got the out of memory, and gave up on that approach.
I guess I could bump it up to 1 gig or more, just to prove the theory but
of course at some point I'm squeamish about wasting address space or actual memory.
1gig is tiny for address space but not for actual memory.
(assuming a full 64 bit address space, which actually is probably not available by far)
