    On a swapless box you are unlikely to ever achieve 65% used by anonymous
    pages in real world applications. Its suprising how much of memory is
    file backed when you actually try it out. One exception in the future
    might be a system with extensive amounts of XIP, where very little of
    the binaries is actually pulled into RAM and thus counted into the
    figures.
