    151158There is a wealth of statistics around heaps and GC. Some of the stats are reasonably common, shared by different implementations while many more are highly specific to a particular implementation. Even if we ignore RTSs other than GHC, we still have an issue of flexibility for future changes in GHC's RTS.
