I concur with Yury in every point.

The idea looks good for three core developers, but I just don't understand 
this. This feature looks useless and misleading to me. It is not atomic and 
doesn't ensure anything, despite its name. If it will be added in the stdlib, 
there should be very good explanation of its purpose and limitations in the 
documentation. And I agree that unittest may be better place than gc if the 
purpose of it is testing.
