AFAIK, kaffe's gc stops the world when it goes about
doing its business. I believe that Sun's VMs only
recently changed their default gc to collect garbage
in an asynchronious thread.
PocketLinux kaffe has a gc interface to the Boehm
garbage collector (used by gcj btw.). I can't tell if
using that gc would be an improvement.
