I would like to figure out how much memory a certain class or object
will/is consuming.  Is there an easy way?  Is there a hard way?
The reason I ask is because I want to keep several hundred thousand
instances of an object much like the following one:

class A
	def initialize
		@a = @b = @c = @d = nil
		@e = 1
	end
end
