I agree with obsoleting memory-limit. I don't like the vsize patch you
installed though: what does the amount of address space reserved actually
tell anyone? There's no relationship to actual resource consumption.

IMHO, memory-limit should return a combination of the Lisp heap size with
whatever malloc says is its own heap size.
