This is more-or-less the current implementation. The rate is
proportional to memory consumption. There is no lower limit. If a
program stops allocating new memory, the collector also stops.
(Lua 5.0 also works that way.)

Sorry, nothing like that. It does have lots of instrumentation, but
for correcness only.
