I'm not sure doing so would be that easy because `bytes-malloced'
follows a periodic distribution whose period is unknown (i.e., each call
to `scm_take_locale_stringn ()' makes it slightly increase, and each
mark/sweep sequence -- which is occurs roughly periodically -- changes
it back to a much lower value).
