Issue: HASH-TABLE-GC (no proposal)

    What this (non-) proposal needs is some implementation to give it a try,
    based on an indentified, actual need.

In Genera we've experimented with weak-key hash tables.  The identified,
actual need was internal to Statice (an object-oriented database
system).  I don't think this form of tables has been released yet.

I agree that it would be premature to standardize on something like this
this year.
