Having worked a lot on XEmacs GC issues, I disagree. What makes it suck in (X)Emacs (IMHO) is the fact that there isn't a consistent methodology to using GCPRO, and that developers constantly try to "optimize" the use of it. For the primitives, you just look up whether they can GC or not. That gets slightly more tedious with more primitives, but not significantly so, I'd say. -- Cheers =8-} Mike Friede, Völkerverständigung und überhaupt blabla
