AFAIR, on unix (and unix-like) systems, a process never releases
memory back to the OS, but it's managed internally as free.

what happens if you allocate another million coroutines after garbage
collecting the first million? do you still use roughly 1.3GB? or does
it goes to 2.6GB?

if it doesn't grow, you'll have to get more frequent collections, so
that you don't have the whole million (or two) coroutines at the same
