Oh boy, you've been paying attention

GC is great for string management compared to a traditional heap.

for mapping a b-tree or b+tree to disk using memory mapped files not so much.

It would be cool if .NET had a mechanism whereby you could create uncollected heaps that you manually destroy, and could allocate objects to them somehow. Maybe by making an appdomain with an UN GC'd heap in it or something.

I know you can suspend garbage collection but that's not really what i'd be after because that impacts all objects.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
