Absolutely; I was responding to the question of whether a generational
collector has particular problems with compilers (or other strongly
phased mutators).  A generational collector might well have an
interface controlling promotion; a generic memory management layer on
top of such a collector might provide some sort of liveness interface
which translates into promotion control.
