not exactly. you may alloc fixed pool of memory to application (say, 1gb)
if you know that it never need more memory. but as far as you don't do
it, memory usage grows with each major GC. ghc just don't provide
any way to return memory to OS (there is a ticket on it, you can add
yourself to CC list to vote for its resolution)
