It's obviously desirable that the lisp and ObjC GCs interact.
Actually getting them to do so depends on ... details. I would
certainly like to know more details of the ObjC 2.0 GC's
implementation than I do, and hope that those details will be
I believe that it is public knowledge that retain and release
will become no-ops when the ObjC GC is enabled.
It's also the case that the lisp should implement
(setf (slot-value objc-object 'id-valued-slot) some-new-object)
in a GC-safe way on ObjC 2.0. (That's a necessary part of keeping
the ObjC GC happy, but there's much more to it than that.)
