What are the requirements?
If it is "niche", then that is application specific.
The GC is for audio-work. IIRC it aims to get close to hard real
time without affecting the real time thread, so it is designed to
use 20% of the time that it takes to fill one audio buffer by
taking a copy of the pointer heap?
Makes sense to me for that particular niche. Might also work for
embedded with the caveat that you need extra memory.
