Indeed, adding another 4GB card gave the following:
Image Resolution 10240 x 7680

Render averaged 159591.86 PPS (391033.08 PPS CPU time) over 78643200 pixels.
I could probably figure out a few tricks to trim down the render time for
something that is in essence a "line drawing".
I'm going to see if my system can accept 16GB, and see how things go from there.
Eventually, I'm sure I'll see if I can find one of these juicy-sounding Xeos
chips and build a system around that with handfuls of memory cards... :)
Alas, other more mundane things must be financed first.
