My hobby project is a multi-threaded game-playing AI. My current scheme uses a shared search tree using lockless updates with search results. Besides general ability to use your scheme for what I've already done, I'm also interested in how to overhaul the garbage collector and implementing lockless hashtables (see high-scale-lib on

I was interested in doing some of that infrastructure and contributing, but so far I've had no luck getting something as simple as a weak references into druntime :(

Yeah, I'm waiting for more details like which fences are introduced by the lockless SC requirements. The high-scale-lib is virtually fence free.
