Is the garbage collection algorithm used in kaffe based upon
any specific algorithm suggested in a paper or book?  In
gcMan() (from gc-incremental.c) one of the comments mentions
Boehm - is the garbage collector based on an algorithm
suggested in a paper written by Hans-Juergen Boehm or is
it just a combination of different ideas?
