Greetings ---

Are there enough potential Sanitation Engineers to create a Garbage
Collection SIG?

This would have several benefits:

1) A crack team of dedicated professionals could quickly decide on the
optimum solution, implement it, and live forever in fame and glory.

2) The GC discussions would be moved out of the general mailing
list/newsgroup, freeing them of the constant debate. <huzzah again!>

3) When someone new shows up with a scheme for garbage collection, the
regulars on the ML/NG can bombard him or her with FTSS (Find The Stinking
SIG) messages. <quiet murmur as future satisfaction is anticipated>

Since it's nice to put your money where your mouth is, I'm willing to
serve as the SIG coordinator as long as everyone understands that:

a) I have only token knowledge of such things as compiler or interpreter

b) What I know about garbage collection schemes could fill a very small

If anyone even remotely more qualified is willing to take the job, I'll
*gladly* remove my hat from the ring.

Your humble servant,
