Follow-up Comment #16, task #6827 (project lwip):

I find that ARP tables are usually only using a very small number of entries.
Even swapping them may be unnecessary for the average number of entries. Am I
atypical? Are people really usually communicating simultaneously with many
hosts on the same subnet?

But then also, I'm not so concerned about options - eCos uses thousands of
options, and it works fine. What matters is not the number of options, but
organising them into functional groups, sensible defaults and a good
description of what each option does. Most people know to leave stuff with
the default unless they need to change it.
