You are probably correct, but not with the current Ruby gc.  Event Dave
and Andy admit in their Pickaxe book "Ruby is not the universal panacea
for programmers' problems.  There will always be times when you'll need a
particular language: the environment may dictate it, you may have special
libraries you need, performance concerns..."  See, "performance concerns".

Also, nothing good comes without any cost.  If real-time GC is really
universally good, and Matz loves gc so much, why Ruby gc is not a
real-time gc?
