The current version checked into the darcs repository has support
for much faster finalization handling, so I invite everybody to give
it a try (find it at the usual place:

Registering finalizers doesn't require a minor GC anymore, and the
(rather brain damaged) old algortithm for checking all registered
finalizers during a major GC has been replaced with a faster and
simpler scheme.
(Ed's benchmark runs about 6 times faster on my machine).

I've done some stress-testing, but I would appreciate if someone
has a finalizer-heavy piece of code and can give any feedback
on performance and correctness of the new implementation.

Merry Christmas to everybody!
