KDevelop memory footprint

What would be a reasonable memory footprint to observe while running KDevelop?

I have a session that on Mac takes over 1Gb RAM ("real memory size"; around 700Mb "private" and almost 300Mb shared). This session contains 5 small projects (all based on simple examples from Qtbase) plus a still quite simple project of my own (https://cgit.kde.org/osx-integration.git/?h=qt590).

The latter project contains a fair share of ObjC++ files, which tend to increase RAM usage in my experience (and generate lots of parser warnings).

Do those numbers seem reasonable? Note that I configure all my sessions NOT to parse each project upon opening, so the memory usage corresponds only to files I have had open (and any headers they include).
