And then we have to remember that it's a "trivial" function that
can't GC?

I can see disliking "frame_buffer_list (FOO)" (as opposed
to "FOO->buffer_list") on length grounds, but I don't understand
disliking it on GC grounds.  The Emacs internals have
lots of functions that don't call the GC; having some
more shouldn't make that much difference one way or another.

I believe that one of the goals for new GC should be the possibility
to run from almost any context, with a few exceptions like signal handlers.
