Lloyd brought this beautiful thing to my attention today:

In a nutshell, through some deep magic, it reduces the size of processes on b2g by a massive 4.5MB through the use of a separate shared-memory process.

And you can use it in your b2g builds now:

In your .userprofile:

  export MOZ_NUWA_PROCESS=1

It may even ship in 1.3:
