Yes, no biggy at all. When I had a Repeater I practically never ran 
into these troubles because I was careful to only create so many/long 
loops that the machine could handle it on the 8 MB RAM. And the tempo 
limitation was no problem either because I found it cool in a musical 
way that the synced Repeater stayed on a (somehow matching) slower 
tempo when the sync master EDP occasionally went up to extreme speed.
