I'm afraid not.  Dmitry is right: GC affects lots of files,
basically, anything that touches a data structure that might
be garbage-collected.

My experience with merging is closer to Dmitry's, I'm afraid.
It's no fun merging, say, the FVAR/WVAR/etc patches with the
inline-function patches that I have pending for post-24.2

It's not that it can't be done -- of course it can -- but it's
tedious and error-prone.  The FVAR/etc patches and the inline
patches are both pervasive, and so have many opportunities
to collide with each other.
