Thanks Mike!
With the current GC implementation, it’s illegal to perform any GC
operations during finalization. There are some exceptions, namely addRoot/addRange and removeRoot/removeRange and the iterators over roots or ranges. I guess it might be possible to support some querying functions during finalization, too.

I'll replace the "any" with "some". Thanks!
