Well, it's still unclear whether the current GC is more efficient, and
how much more if it is.  Furthermore, the GBGC code is a few weeks old
so it may be possible to tune it a bit more.

IMO, although I'm quite concerned with performance, I don't think it
should be the only criterion: maintainability and portability are
important as well.  The fact that Bigloo uses BGC also tends to reassure
me: if Guile can someday perform as bad as Bigloo compiled code (or
simply, as bad as its interpreter), then I'll be very happy.  ;-)
