It occurred to me that another solution might be to use an (as-yet  
nonexistent) java.par.gc or il.par.gc grade, working on the  
assumption that the JVM/.NET runtime garbage collectors might perform  
better in a threaded environment than the Boehm GC. Of course, if the  
JVM implementation uses Boehm as its garbage collector --- as many  
free implementations do --- this would be obviously untrue!
