Are there any decent python memory profilers available?

> Are there any decent python memory profilers available?

As part of Google's "summer of code", Nick Smallbone (mentored by Michael Hudson and Jeremy Hylton) will be developing a Python memory profiler.
 
I think the fact that this was a project suggestion by the PSF, and that it was accepted, is reasonable evidence that there isn't an existing profiler (or if there is, there isn't one that is sufficient for most purposes).
 
The good news is that at the end of 'summer' (winter, here ;) there may well be a (free) profiler that you can use.  The bad news is that this probably isn't the case now.
