GHC is planning to use the Large Address Space mode of allocation for
future releases on windows.
This is a significant optimization for the GC and well tested as we use
it on Linux already.
However it will regress memory useage on versions of windows *older*
than Windows 8.1/Sever 2012.
Please let us know if you are targeting older versions than that either
by responding to the mailing list,
commenting on the ticket or contacting me directly if you have privacy
Depending on how many people are affected by this change we might
consider measures to reduce the impact.
