you are right again. so, that remains: you shouldn't suppose that
user have read 90's GC paper. give a short excerpt of it: how
generational GC works and how memory usage converts to memory
footprint. then descriptions of RTS options will serve as
"modifications" to this "baseline"

one minor update: manual said

"For each garbage collection, we print:

    * How many bytes we allocated this garbage collection."

i think it should be "How many bytes we allocated *SINCE* last garbage
