I wouldn't need that much ram if I didn't run those services would I?

It's fair to say "Add 128 megs if you need BGP", assuming 128 is what 
the daemons need.

Just like any marketing glossy...

"m0n0router requires 4 megabytes of RAM"

:)

While the routing protocols are nice I can see where they just aren't 
required for the average T1/DSL internet router that just needs a nice 
management interface and some basic filtering.  (automated bogon list 
downloading anyone?)
