Right, that is what is strange.  If I look at the raw memory usage of
the process (running Linux here) it's still using all the memory even
though everything has supposedly been collected.  In my real test I
add a "socket.sleep" to the end so I can have a chance to check the
memory usage in the OS.  I also create about 1 million coroutines
which use about 1.3 GB of RAM, after the collection the process it is
still using 1.3 GB of RAM.
