What about calling collectgarnage(“collect”)?
In some system I did that in a global error handler (top-level pcall) to avoid problems. However that forces collection of all garbage, not a single object. I wouldn't do it after a for loop, for instance. Also that doesn't work (or isn't easy to write) if you call `return`.
