It's only about super-simple mark&sweep with generations (aka stop the
world, non-compacting), but certainly not about "modern" GC techniques
(also from the 70ies, but still not implemented in "mainstream"
languages, only in better languages), like cheney loops, tri-color
non-stop-the world sweeps, incremental and thread safe gc's, real-time
GC's, or compacting GC's.
