In any strategy only a heuristic could be used in order to decide wether or not it's safe to raise MemoryError. How exactly is memory pressure expected for x=[2]*200 but not for x=2*200 ?

I don't think a new function could ultimatly achieve it's goal. If MemoryError occurs, all bets are off. Shutting down as fast as possible is the best we could do, if requested.
