I had another look into this and I'm cleaning up some of the tricks I pulled
hoping to save on memory leakage with this knowledge.

It does strike me that function calls leak rather a lot of memory, even for
functions in which nothing gets defined beyond their parameters (which are
primitives, in this case). Is there any way to avoid this? Maybe I should
leave it be and wait for the next version to see if the proper GC addresses
the issue?
