I second this feature request. What would be nice is a way for
us hackers to know that GC is happening without bothering the
casual user. Maybe a dot or small font "g" in the menu bar?
Would replacing the GC cursor with a watch cursor be sufficient?
Or how about a slightly modified watch cursor that looked like the
watch to casual observers but the eagle-eye could tell it was a gc.
