 Two arenas of equal size, with only one arena in use and getting filled
 with new objects.  When the arena is full, the live objects are copied
 into the other arena using Cheney's algorithm.  The old arena is then

 On Unix the clearing is done by reading ``/dev/zero`` into the arena,
 which is extremely memory efficient at least on Linux: it lets the

+This is a two-generations GC.  See `rpython/memory/gc/generation.py`_.
 It is implemented as a subclass of the Semispace copying collector.  It
 adds a nursery, which is a chunk of the current semispace.  Its size is
 Each generation is collected much less often than the previous one.  The
 division of the generations is slightly more complicated than just
