Real Time GC

Essentially, the problem with RT gc is that you need to guarantee that
the collector will always catch up with the mutator.  If there is
enough memory to spare (buffer) then this can effectively work in
practice, though it doesn't seem that hard guarantees can be obtained.

For systems with little spare memory this poses a problem.
