Right, or--worse--it may never be paged in to begin with.  As the memory
is allocated, it is not paged in until it is used and, since this is a
leak, e.g. we presumably are not using it, it may never be paged in.

Of course, the GC changes a lot of these semantics, so the difference
between RSS and total VM is smaller, but I'd still want to watch total
VM size, not RSS.
