|* This garbage collector is an extremely simple copying collector.  It splits
|* the managed region of memory into two pieces: the current space to allocate
|* from, and the copying space.  When the portion being allocated from fills up,
|* a garbage collection cycle happens, which copies all live blocks to the other
|* half of the managed space.
