The heuristic basically has to decide if memory pressure is so high that it's not save to return to the interpreter. Even if there is a chosen value (e.g. failed allocation attempts below 1mb are considered fatal), there can always be another OS-thread in the interpreter process that eats away exactly that memory while we are returning MemoryError - the program might still hang.
FWICS all MemoryErrors are to be considered fatal or none of them
