The documentation for that is in the source files for the GC, the GC is even in 
its own subdirectory, src/gc. It stands to reason that to replace the GC, that's 
where to look.

Doing a replacement GC is pretty advanced work. If one is ready for that, it 
isn't unreasonable to expect one to peruse those files. It's a bit beyond the 
scope of D to provide a tutorial on how to write a replacement GC, though you're 
welcome to do it and contribute it.
