I wouldn't try that at home.  ;-)

However, you might want to try the `boehm-demers-weiser-gc' branch of
Guile, which uses Boehm GC as a replacement of Guile's own GC.  To try
it, you must:

  1. Fetch the Git repository
  2. Run "git checkout boehm-demers-weiser-gc".

  3. Run "autoreconf -vfi".

  4. Run "./configure && make && make install".  You need Boehm GC 7.1
     for that (it's not in Debian).
