The garbage collector is similar to the ETH Oberon collector.  All 
processors are stopped and a mark-sweep collection done.  It is in 
AosHeap.Mod.  An incremental or parallel garbage collector would be 
better for Aos.

Gneiss was a microkernel for distributed message-passing systems.  It 
didn't have automatic memory management.
