In 1.6, scm_done_malloc and scm_done_free can tell the gc how much is
in use.  Those funcs don't actually do any malloc or free, they just
let the gc keep score of how much is in use.  When it gets above a
threshold a gc is run to try to reduce.

But these funcs aren't actually documented, and in the cvs head I
think they're changing to scm_gc_register_collectable_memory and
