Speaking of memory leaks, how greedy for memory can I be in these modern
times, when you can't tell the AC's from the DC's (but I digress)

I am used to having a severely limited pool of memory.  64k per Pascal Unit
and 64k of data.  

How much memory can I burn in ruby?  Am I only limited by RAM + Swap on the
box I am using.  What are the penalities for using much memory?
