Has anyone done a study into the impact of these various things and
RAM usage? For example how much RAM can I spare if I don't use Modest
at all, or don't use chat accounts, etc. allowing me to weigh the
  cost vs. benefit of using these features.

IIRC, Skype when I used it seemed to be about 5-10Meg impact on RSS.

In general, I'd imagine having any QT widgets would add 10-20M use. Not
so sure myself, I stopped using widgets entirely, not enough ram for
luxuries :)

You can use sp-endurance to measure and visualize usage of all system resources.

I would recommend getting the latest version from here:

And the debian packaging from maemo-packaging branch and remove
the Harmattan specific "aegis" stuff from the debian/control file
before building the package.

The latest version has pretty nice graphing utilities.

Instructions on the use are here:

They're about the same as for N900:

Except for the new endurance_plot utility which generates the nice graphs with gnuplot.
