I think this is both too specific and too generic. On one side, valgrind
is only one of available memory debuggers: there is also ASAN (granted,
it requires a specific setup) or DrMemory on Windows. On the other side,
memory checker is only one of the valgrind tools (albeit the default
one). Maybe "want-memtrace" or "want-memcheck"? (I prefer the latter.)
