Lua 4.0 has a new function `gcinfo'. Its first return is the current
memory usage of Lua. This value is a lower bound, usually within 5% of
the real value, and is expressed in Kbytes.

(the second result it the current threshold for GC).
(Unfortunately, this function did not find its way into the manual ;-)
