(I haven't followed this debate closely, so I may be missing out on
something, but:) 

Perhaps it could be possible to embed a default in
the executable as well, through a command line option to the
compiler/linker?   You know, for the occasional program that actually
requires more heap than one is comfortable declaring in GHCRTS, but
one is too lazy to write a shell wrapper for?

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
