Congratulations to Antti-Ville Tuuainen for passing the GSoC 2012 
midterm evaluation!  Despite going through a steep learning curve 
to learn D's template metaprogramming system, Antti-Ville has 
precise heap scanning for the garbage collector close to working 
using the new rtinfo template that has been added to object.d.  
His Github repository is at:

https://github.com/Tuna-Fish/druntime

The plans for the second half include creating an alternative 
implementation of precise scanning that may be more efficient and 
removing the global lock from malloc() if time permits.

Congratulations Antti-Ville! I can't wait to see this in action! :)
