experimentation. There is a multitude of gc algorithms to
choose from (what fun).
Our general approach is

3. make it fast (and robust for real-time)
4. make it small
We plan to try a few approaches, including some flavor of reference
counting (with cycle-detection) and eventually explore more advanced
options such as incremental and generational gc. We may even provide
a command line flag to choose the gc scheme (similar to recent Java
Will keep our list updated and we may see a rc or two...
