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.
<huzzah!>

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
design.

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

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

Your humble servant,
--- Robert
