The `garbage-collect` command actually can return info about the current
Lisp heap use.  The `memory-usage` package can display it in a more
user-friendly format.

That can be very useful to see if those 500MB belong to the Lisp heap or
to ... something else (typically libraries, like those of the GUI or
those used to display images).
