I think I remember reading that Self uses a generational copying garbage
collector. Is that right? If so, I'm curious about why that approach was
taken instead of something like an incremental tri-color collector.
A generational collector would avoid the frequent pauses of a mark and
sweep collector but would still have infrequent pauses which (I would
think) would be a problem for a interactive system.
