[gclist] write-barrier implementation in Java VM?

just out of curiosity,  what is the size of the heap for KVM (typically)?

i.e.,  is it worth bothering with an incremental GC for a really tiny
VM? (which I understand is the whole idea behind KVM, correct me if
I am wrong)?

I found out (the hard way...) that a plain and simple stop-the-world
approach can be surprisingly effective with small heaps...
