// expesive memory processing ....

function cleanup() 
  posix_kill (posix_getpid(), 15) || posix_kill (posix_getpid(), 9);


eventually, in a auto_apend file, if all the scripts are eating much mem.

IIRC, Posix support is compiled by default, so it looks like a nice
workarround for the memory problem...

I was wondering, could a SIGHUP to the current child make it to release
the memory? TERM is a bit harsh.
