[erlang-questions] memory impact of increasing dump_log_time_threshold / dump_log_write_threshold

i (might) want to increase mnesia's dump_log_time_threshold and/or
dump_log_write_threshold.

however my intuition says that, since writes go to a write-ahead log first
and then later to permanent storage (even dirty_writes!), that there might
be some in-memory representation of pending writes prior to the log behind
dumped.

so: are there memory usage ramifications to increasing the time between
mnesia's log dumps?
