And I really hope that more than just a look (and a discussion) will
come out of this.  Making our GC more efficient is an important
development goal, of which over the years we've seen several attempts,
but unfortunately little advancement in practice.  I hope interested
individuals will step forward and continue developing this (or any
other) initiative so that we will eventually be able to replace our GC
with a better one.

Thanks in advance for developing this aspect of Emacs.
