Pipe dream?

	[ Most recent version of clisp. Netbsd1.2beta, i386.      ]
	[ If anyone wants, I could make up a binary distribution. ]

	Is there a way of detecting when a GC is imminent? Could I
	specify some sort of threshold, and when reached a specific
	function gets called?

	The application is to run messages off to users to hold off
	a minute for GC to occur, if I expect it to take more than
	a few seconds.

	I'm using generational GC if it matters, on the main machine.


	Thanks for the many responses to questions so far my friends.
