Is there a meaningful way to dump the game state to a text file (variables, objects, mobs, etc.)? If so, you could do a pre-reboot dump and a post-reboot dump and then compare the two (with a fancy utility or just grep/awk). It might be useful for setting up long-term garbage collection systems and prioritizing what in-game systems need clean up the most, especially if some prove to be chronic offenders over time. Probably a low priority project though.
