GC pauses aren't inherent.

I've written a java compiler that does GC and watched that part work; no pauses even for data structures with loops, and generally excellent performance. Not released yet, because I've also watched other parts not work.

But GC without pauses: That worked. And I was relieved² when I saw that my ivory tower worked, after many people had told me it couldn't possibly ;)
