It's hard to get started using GC -- hard to know which parts of
the MPS are important.

We should write the simplest possible example of the MPS
collecting some garbage.
AnalysisRHSK 2006-05-15
Simplest is to use mps_arena_collect(), and show it successfully
discriminating between live and dead objects.

Keep it really simple.

Remember that the audience for this example may not be familiar
with how GC works. Pitch source comments at a general GC tutorial
