in reply to memory usage of modules

This looks pretty useful - I guess it could also be used (with a little tinkering) to return current memory usage - or even have a simple memory usage object with methods for giving the difference from another object of the same class. This way people could use the function however they liked, say doing one bit of analysis and finding out how their usage has changed etc... and shoot warnings / death if usage is too high etc...

There is Devel::Size but that isn't really the same thing, and neither is Benchmark::Harness::MemoryUsage (which also doesn't seem to be actively developed any more). I don't know if there is a general usage memory monitor, it would be really useful.

Just a something something...
