some relevant threads on comp.lang.functional

This morning, the following question came up on comp.lang.functional:
"I've been mulling over Armstrong and Virding's paper,
"One Pass Real-Time Generational Mark-Sweep Garbage
Collection" (In Proc. Int. Workshop on Memory Management,
1995, see www.sics.se/~joe/pubs/historyGC.ps <http://www.google.com/url?sa=D&q=http://www.sics.se/~joe/pubs/historyGC.ps>)
Does anyone know whether this was implemented and,
if so, how well it performed? [...]"
Also, I've been drawn into a debate on the thread "What ML language do you recommend?"
The part that concerns me has to do with Concurrent ML vs Erlang, concurrency models, etc.
I quoted Roger Price's experience with Concurrent ML, for example, and the most recent posts discuss the book on Concurrent ML (which I haven't read), and whether synchronous communication is inherently more powerful than asynchronous communication.
Feel free to chip in. (:
