yes, i anonymously grabbed the latest out of CVS.

i ran gctest using a single threaded, statically linked gc and it
appeared to pass.  is there a long running stress test that i can run?

i haven't yet run gctest multithreaded, but i'll do this tomorrow.
(any test options i should know about?)

done!  they were sufficiently guarded.

great!  i'd like to help with getting docs a little more up to date, too.
