I remember playing with this a while back but it seems coarse-grain:
given that the effective heap utilization is already pretty good by
default (GC_free_space_divisor == 3), the only other "interesting"
setting is GC_free_space_divisor == 2, where you trade space for
execution time.

What do you have in mind?

Thanks,
