Proxy Cache: how much shared memory is "enough"?

I'm planning to deploy some big websites which will make heavy usage of
proxy cacheing (e.g. 1.5 million actively accessed objects in cache). The
ratio of plain HTML vs images should be about 50/50 if that does have any
impact on the scenario itself. Now the question which came up is how much
Shared Memory for such a cache is enough. The docs don't really say very
much about that. So may be one of you can give me a hint on how much memory
is suitable for such a deployment.

Thanks in advance.
