er, define typical... :)

there are some figures on memory footprint (now perhaps a little outdated) in 
the mirage ASPLOS'13 paper. the latest xen image in the mirage-www-deployment 
repo looks like ~2.5MB for the entire http://openmirage.org website.

sorry, i don't, don't know if anyone else does.

fwiw i've a 3rd year undergrad project student (sam williams) at the moment 
who's putting erlang on xen directly (ie., not using ErlangOnXen). i expect it 
will be open source when released (though that's up to him). the student has 
already released some of his early prototypes, including moo and lisp -- 
https://github.com/samcamwilliams/moo-on-xen and 
https://github.com/samcamwilliams/lisp-on-xen. i expect he'll get some figures 
on memory footprint when he writes his dissertation.
