I'm not sure what mode line warning you are talking about.  But, as
Andreas says, and can be shown by experimenting with 'ulimit', Emacs
measures usage of virtual memory.  Physical memory usage is subject the
allocation algorithms of the OS, and can't be reliably measured.

So I don't think this feature request can be satisfied.
