We argue that garbage collection should be more closely tied to object demographics. We show that this behaviour is sufficiently distinctive to make exploitation feasible and describe a novel GC framework that exploits object lifetime analysis yet tolerates imprecision. We argue for future collectors based on combinations of approximate analyses and dynamic sampling.
