It will, but the changes will happen sooner if particular use cases are 
brought up as problematic.  Particularly if tweaks can be made here and 
there to improve performance without writing an entirely new garbage 
collector.  That said, I have considered writing a GC more targeted at 
concurrent programming than the current implementation (basically an 
improved version of Hoard with mark/sweep collection added), but doing 
so would take time I don't have at the moment.  Maybe sometime after 1.0.
