This question has been asked several times since I've been
reading the list.  Somebody once posted a patch to dump memory
to file, but I don't think it made it into the official

I'd really prefer to be able to do it with commands so that it
can be automated or done from within a macro.  

Obviously I haven't wanted it badly enough to actually
impliment something like that and submit a patch.  ;) 

But it would be handy.
