Brian mentioned to me in IM that he has the automated memory-usage  
measurements running again.  Hooray!  I just now remembered that  
there is a tool that might come in handy: valgrind massif.  It is  
easy to use -- it takes only a minute to learn how to use it and get  
a nice graph of your program's memory usage pattern over time.

Unfortunately there is a known bug in massif which causes it to emit  
bad data, but hopefully that is because I was using massif on tasks  
that were several orders  of magnitude larger (in time and in memory  
usage) than it was originally intended for.
