[chuck-users] recycling program

Are there tools or techniques for monitoring memory allocation in  
ChucK?  I've been stress testing my code, and after about five hours  
ChucK vm stops with a malloc / mmap failure.  It would be nice to  
figure out what's clogging memory.  [In a previous life, I was an  
embedded systems programmer, so I'm happy to create reusable object  
pools and managing the objects myself, but I need to know what leaks  
and what doesn't.]

On a related note, I notice that ChucK uses the standard library  
malloc rather centralizing calls through a single chuck_malloc() (or  
the existing checked_malloc()).  Going through a single call would  
make it easier to monitor heap allocations.  Just my $0.25.
