[mercury-users] Forcing garbage collection

Is it possible to force a garbage collection in asm_fast.gc?

There is gc.garbage_collect, but if I'm reading it correctly it appears 
to be a no-op in asm_fast.gc.

(I'm interested in forcing garbage collecting at certain points in 
program execution in order to get a better idea of total memory usage 
without being distracted by memory that the program has allocated, but 
currently contains garbage and will be reclaimed later).

Best regards,
