memory-usage.el makes it human readable.

I used to have lots of memory issues. At the time I made the following

- create a memory meter in the modeline, then it would at least be
  possible to see when memory is consumed, and maybe get a clue.

- modify the garbage collector, to make some form of dump to a file,
  when the mark stage occurs. (this is like the "jhat" java tool)

- modify the garb so as to flag an object for pretend delete. then a
  pretend garb would be done, and a measure of how much memory would be
  reclaimed if that object was to be deleted would be returned.
