I believe this would be as tedious and expensive as clearing the stack
on entry to a function.  It also requires ugly OS-dependent
code/assembly.  Also, when would you exactly do that, except where we
call GC?

I think what I suggested a few minutes ago is better, and seems to
solve the problem at hand.
