Garbage collector

Is anyone working on a better garbage collector for T?  Something along the
lines of a symbolics like ephemeral grabage collector would be nice.  I'm
running a T program for which it is common to have 6 megabytes of relatively
static data.  Having to always copy the entire heap makes GC very painful.
Also, having a static heap size and two full size heaps are also very
inconvenient.  Has anyone though about implementing a GC algorithm that has
a segmented heap and only copies one segment at a time?
