This will require using --with-features=huge
I will have to investigate the implications of changing from the current value "big", to "huge".

I also found some info at:

As far as I can tell, the only option that requires huge is +profile.

That's a shame, I guess it makes it much harder to justify adding it. I'm not sure how much it would even be needed by the majority of vim users, either. Honestly, I don't even need it right now. I was more curious than anything else.

There are a couple places I could afford to tune, but they are by no means holding me back or slowing me down in any way.

Whatever you think is best.

It's definitely worth looking into, the next time I update vim (in about 50 patch levels), I will take a more thorough look into it. Thanks for the suggestion.

vim/gvim in [testing] now uses --with-features=huge which enables +profile.

let me know if you are able to test and have everything working :)
