It appears the only gjs fixes we are missing are:
  https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gjs/merge_requests/121
  https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gjs/merge_requests/122

However the first is more to do with performance, and a little to do with memory usage. It's also included in upstream gjs releases 1.52.3 and later. The second is included in release 1.53.2. So we'll just do a version upgrade of gjs in cosmic for that right now and people can try it out.

As for the rest of the fixes:
  https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-shell/issues/64
they are in mutter. Either already released in mutter version 3.28.1, or too small to backport early, or actually not to do with memory usage.

So in summary I think we are only missing gjs!121 and gjs!122 in Ubuntu:
 * cosmic: will get it as part of an update to the latest gjs version.
 * bionic: may get it later if people feel it's useful.

Please correct me if I am wrong and have missed anything.
