Hi Aashish,

It seems that the memory consumption with the tetrahedalize filter is quite 
excessive, and probably too high for our usage-scenario (our cluster nodes 
only have 16 GB ram).

I couldn't find the thread you wrote about in the mailing list archives. Do you 
know anything more specific about that thread?
