Perhaps with mono, LL could have llGetFreeMemory 'manually' force a
serialize/deserialize cycle, sothat it can continue on a clean slate
as well as report the available memory accurately. This would make no
sense with the current VM because it simply works with 16k images. But
if I understood that video about mono correctly, this is not true for
the mono VM, and furthermore they already need to serialize a script
just to get an approximation of it's current actual size, after which
they simply discard the serialized copy.
