Another paper on VM aware GCs: first link when looking for 'vm aware garbage collector' on Google.
They got significant improvement on their benchmark by making the VM and the GC communicate.
Of course whether this show real like improvement is anyone guess..
One annoying thing with these papers is that they use copying GCs which doesn't interact well with C-based libraries: they're useful only for Java not the other scripting language which tend to reuse C-based libraries..
