...in welcoming David Simcha to the Phobos developers list.

David has done great work and we think he will add great value to 
Phobos. I suggest Sean to add him to the druntime developers list to 
make it easier to integrate David's garbage collector.

Glad to hear his work has gotten him formal recognition, and accepted as a worthy change to Phobos. Keep up the good work David.

I'm not joining you. You are ugly and your mother smells of elderberries. Does this mean we get a precise GC?!

Does this mean we get a precise GC?! Sweet!

Precise heap scanning. The stack and static data segment will still be conservative. Also, there are still some plumbing issues to resolve as far as getting the pointer offset info to the GC when an object is new'd as opposed to malloc'd. IMHO, though, precise heap scanning should solve most false pointer problems. In any program that uses enough memory for false pointers to be problematic, the heap is orders of magnitude larger than the stack and static data segment. However, I haven't had a chance to test this in real-world programs b/c of the aforementioned problems with new. As far as precise stack and static data segment scanning, they're an order of magnitude harder because they would require major changes to the compiler. I was able to do precise heap scanning with only a few templates and changes to the runtime. The only compiler changes that will be necessary are the minor plumbing issues with new that I mentioned already.

Just don't fart in my general direction. I'd get so mad I might club a baby sycophant. Meh, the heck with it all, I'm going panning for chickens... AAALLBATROSS!!
