S7's has a tracing garbage collector, meaning that it has a set of
"roots" which it traces all live objects from. When all live objects
are found, everything else can be freed. You might want to find this
work interesting:
although I'm not sure it would work very well as a replacement for
s7's garbage collector. It might work to replace it with BDW-GC
running in incremental mode though, although I wouldn't bet on it.
