I just now see, at the bottom of this paragraph:
that the GC of OCaml is not designed for concurrency. So it cannot be  
used on a multicore system, it seems (by this comment).

In addition, a reference count GC good when exact timing is needed. So  
it might be best for a language that should produce real time music.  
Fortunately, it is easiest to implement.

So it suggests that Chuck might be best off to implement its own  
lambda calculus on top of what already exits, just using a reference  
counts GC, as Kassen mentioned was planned. That is, would anybody  
like to implement it :-).

Anyway, it shows some of the concerns that must be addressed when  
implementing lambda calculus.
