What we need is CODE.  Somebody's gotta step up to the plate and
generate some patches that people can play with.  The best idea I've
heard yet is to graft some GC on top of the already existing
refcounting scheme.  Sounds good to me, but I'm no GC expert so I have
no idea how to do this.  I'm just sitting here waiting for someone to
pick a scheme, snag an implementation, and post some hacks.  Then
we'll have a starting point from which the real fun can begin!
