The best paper I had read about this topic was related to the ability
to implement a reasonably safe GC in C++, retaining the compatibility
with existing code. It did explain how the current implementations of
C++ managed multiple inheritance. Unfortunately, I cannot find the
original reference back. I think it was written by someone from DEC,
and the title was:
Safe & Efficient Garbage Collection in C++
Hope it helps...
