Lion RAM hoggery

My early Intel Mac Pro running OS X Lion has been really bogged down lately in terms of RAM. After chasing various apps around for a week, I appear to have found the (a?) culprit — Spotlight’s indexing of big (internal and external) hard drives for photos and videos. Tailoring Spotlight’s behaviour is possible inside System Preferences –> Spotlight –> Privacy; I just turned the indexing off except on my boot drive.
