As I said, the mistake was that nobody had properly re-tested the assumption that the GC did not
work acceptably for too long. But, attacking straw men is more fun, right? I'm sorry you have such
an acute dislike for garbage collectors that you need to make things up to prove them terrible.
Lest anyone be confused: CMUCL and SBCL's garbage collectors are essentially identical, and CMUCL
has had a generational garbage collector since...a very long time ago.
While Lisp has most certainly not taken over the world, garbage collectors have.
