Garbage Collector API
Message ID:
So the summerizor doesn't get upset with me, I'll restate this in a
seperate thread. 

We are should have an API to talk to the GC and give it hints about when it
should run, and tweek the verious paramitors for its running.
For example

use GC trigger => 10`percent;

GC::run(); # Trigger the Garbige collector to run at this moment
GC::exclude(&code); # Don't run the Garbige collector while &code is
being executed.

Please excuse my spelling as I suffer from agraphia. See to find out more.
