now for something completely different

I recently upgraded a 1GiB VM to a later Ubuntu, gaining systemd, and
now find its pages running the same software as before. That's mainly
weechat-curses, an IRC client, going all the time, and the occasional
get_iplayer. The latter maxes out at about 200MiB, I think, when doing
a --pvrrun on a single match. Quite a chunk. I see it's pulling in
Perl's XML::Parser that uses Expat, but haven't dug any deeper.
Am I right in thinking it has to read a bunch of data files and then
fork and exec rtmpdump and ffmpeg to do the hard work?
