Since we don't have any hard benchmarks conveniently available, let's assume
for the sake of argument that a precise/moving/etc. GC would be slower.  Your
case is a niche case and calls for a niche garbage collector implementation. 
D's GC is designed (IIRC) to allow selecting an implementation at link time. 
Eventually, someone could write a decent low-latency GC optimized for small
heaps for game programmers.  In the mean time, we could fork the current one. 
The stock GC, though, should handle the common cases, not a few game
programmers' corner case.
