No, and it probably never was <wink>: the intent of enabling gc during the
betas was to determine *whether* to enable it for the final release. The
beta experience with gc was very good: a few subtle problems were
uncovered, and Neil fixed them quickly. It should probably get a ton of
performance testing that never happened, but then so should have all of
2.0 -- no particular reason to pick on gc alone for that.
