comment Prevent KDE from swapping
Thanks for the suggestion, @Chris.C, that indeed would've been an option otherwise, but one of the reasons I have this much RAM is that every now and then I use some statistical programs (R and Python), where I'm OK with eventually exceeding the quota (since that's usually for a good cause). I'm not sure yet, but it seems like once in a while, when something like this happens, KDE will also begin swapping and even after the original cause is no more, will still use the swap (but this is just a guess).

comment Prevent KDE from swapping
Bah, I looked into the wrong line. Nope, I'm not using Nouveau, though just for the record, I've restarted the system and now neither kwin nor plasma desktop don't swap. It must happen some time during the exploitation that they require more memory and then don't let it go?

@geewee oh, I didn't think about it, well, it seems like it's using Nouveau driver, I'll try to replace it with Nvidia's proprietary one and see if there will be any difference. (added that info to the question).

comment Info: how to get a list of all articles programmatically?
@jcoppens /usr/share/Info is certainly not enough. For instance, there's also $INFOPATH variable, but there's also Info-directory-list in Emacs (for me, there are about ten directories all in all), plus most info files don't map to articles one-to-one, sometimes there are many articles in the same file. But it seems like parsing the output of info --subnodes is trivial, so, I'll probably just write some regexps and be done with it.

@jcoppens nope, I didn't know about this one, and had no idea there are so many of them! On the second though though, I'd prefer this to be accomplished using the programs which I can expect to be installed on a typical Linux desktop (Emacs can be assumed to be one, since this is supposed to be used in Emacs).

comment Info: how to get a list of all articles programmatically?
@jcoppens Info is a program, which can display help contents. The files are typically in a special format, which is mostly text, but also use some non-printable characters to aid the reader. These files are typically created by editing TexInfo files (plain text with some markup). Man pages serve similar purpose, but are in a different format / use a different reader. Here's more formal introduction: gnu.org/software/texinfo/manual/info-stnd/info-stnd.html#Top

comment Is it possible to extract multiple groups at once when fontifying with font-lock?
Thanks for the answer, I found a partial answer too: using ("\\(group one\\)\\(group two\\)" (1 face-one) (2 face-two)) seems to do what I asked above, but it doesn't solve the original problem, because extracting repeating groups (such as if matching delimited lists) becomes very tedious with long fixed length lists and impossible with lists of arbitrary length. So, yes, I'm going to research the search-based fontification).
