 || Can anybody provide us with data on object lifetime distribution?  or

This is probably not what you are looking for, but: in the context of
research on persistence by reachability, my student Nicolas Richer just
finished a study of lifetimes of objects on the Web.  He studies the
effectiveness of reference-listing GC and of clustering algorithms based
on actual Web data.  He is finishing his PhD; his thesis is available on
request (in French).
