FWIW we have -mem=0 as a (somewhat backwards) shortcut for "no limit".

We could probably default to not mmap when that other buffer is used. 
Using mmap doesn't make much sense then anyway (but I never saw any hit 
from it so I opted for simplicity).

It may currently come with that memory buffer. I'll see what I can do.

I dropped source() from a few formats when I added reversing steps. I 
think I was confused: You can't have source() with a reduced binary - 
but reversing steps does not mandate a reduced binary.
