Ok, I've done the following:

  - disabled the maximum heap size by default.  It can still be
    enabled with +RTS -M<size>

  - RTS options are taken from the GHCRTS environment variable
    in addition to the command line (the command line has precedence).

  - Compacting garbage collection is enabled when the residency
    reaches a certain percentage of the maximum heap size (if there
    is one).
