For all the reasons you mentioned (thanks for the details; I love
learning from your longer posts) what you say here makes good sense.
But I would also suggest what Mark Wieder is after is also useful,
though perhaps very different.
From time to time it's useful to know how much RAM may be available to
an application, to make decisions about loading data.
Wieder's script seems to handle that, though I agree that it does seem
to be solving a very different problem from the hasMemory function.
