This would be useful for unit tests, to detect GC hazards. For instance, one could do "gczeal(2);", and expect exercised code to crash if code has obvious liveness/rooting flaws. jsshell has this feature; though this bug may belong in Testing/TUnit rather than xpcshell proper. (do_setgczeal?)

I would certainly use this in unit tests for jsctypes, for instance, which uses JSAPI heavily and has many opportunities for gc hazards.
Nope, it's xpcshell proper, probably about ten lines.

This did not take very long at all, but it's my first time touching js stuff.  Please be gentle?

r=me if you use JS_ValueToECMAUint32, as the regular JS shell does.
