There was a discussion over in comp.compilers about SML NJ (a Standard
ML compiler) and how its garbage collector thrashed virtual memory.

Has there been any work in VM-friendly garbage collection? My guess
would be to do reference counting and a FIFO freespace list, as a
start, and to split memory up into sub-heaps so marking doesn't cause
all memory to be paged in.
