I agree that you have to trust the C code, but I remember that the Emacs
(and Xemacs) people were reporting lots of hard to find bugs that ended up
being caused by C code forgetting to register some object.  The problem is
that just like forgetting a lock in threaded code, you get away with it almost
all the time.  I remember that just because of all these problems, they were
trying conservative non-moving GCs.  (YUCK)
