This function's behavior is dependent upon the VM the script is using. Mono is the new VM, LSO is the old VM. The big difference between between Mono and LSO is that Mono scripts run faster and can utilize four times more memory.
In Mono the value returned is the amount of memory currently in use by the script.
LSO scripts always use 16KiB of memory.
