I agree that GC has to be made faster but those dancing Duke Java
animations also run on top of a garbage collector. I think that
it's not conservative though I haven't seen it's internals
(has anyone had experience with C extensions to Java and how they
cooperate with the GC, does Java have stack-top difficulties?)
