Ok, trying to generate some discussion on ruby-talk:

A few days ago this article pointed out how generational GC in ruby is 
potentially dangerous for production systems[1].

Someone asked on lobste.rs[3] why ruby is being singled out here. Isn't 
this a danger for *all* languages with gen GC? [2]

Hope to hear your thoughts, ruby folks...
