Is there an opportunity for whatever backend memory manager is bolted
onto Lua to do compaction? Even if a hardcoded heap is supplied using a
primitive malloc() style library, it's entirely possible that the
fragmentation in the heap will result in a non-functional Lua subsystem
after a period of time.
