See `gcinfo' (in Lua) or `lua_getgccount' (in C). (I am afraid gcinfo didn't
go into the manual...
Returns the number of Kbytes of dynamic memory Lua is using, and (as a
second result) the current garbage collector threshold (also in Kbytes).
In Lua 4.0, that value is not exact: "[The] internal byte counter kept
by Lua is not completely acurate; it is just a lower bound, usually within
10% of the correct value." In 4.1 it will be exact.
