So rather than agonizing over object ownership, we tweak one tunable, the heap size, yet the existence of this single tunable apparently makes GCs 'pseudoscience'?
Hint: GCs are actually studied, quite intensively, by actual computer scientists. Science is what scientists do: thus, GC research is science. Enough of the badmouthing. (It is quite evident to me at least that no amount of evidence will change your opinion on this score: further discussion is clearly pointless.)
