That reminds me. I had previously thought a hybrid approach for garbage
collection would be beneficial. One could use regional GC for all objects
that can be safely assigned to regions, for all others, use an incremental
GC.  Perhaps some additional assumptions could be made about the "global"
region objects that would allow for further optimizations.
