Parallel GC

IIRC, there was some work being done this past summer on parallelizing
GC for SMP GHC (I think that's my current record for most acronyms in
one sentence). GHC 6.6 is reported as having single-threaded GC, and
I'm wondering if an unforeseen technical problem might have come up
with parallelization, or whether something is still in the works.

Excitedly awaiting GHC's SMP GC,
