Is there anywhere this ratio is documented?

In section 3.1 of the FAQ, it implies that 512MB is only required if
you have around 45GB worth of cache, and in Martin Hamilton's sizing
compilation <>, one user
reports using 16GB of cache disk with only 128MB actual memory.

Has Squid 2.2 become much more of a memory user than earlier versions,
or ???
