Is anyone using the generational mode for the garbage collection in
Lua 5.2.1?

We received very little feedback about the generational mode since it
was introduced in Lua 5.2. In our own experiments the generational mode
did not show relevant advantages (although it is still hard for us to
find real Lua programs where to test that kind of stuff). As it is a big
source of complexity for the collector, we are considering whether it is
worth keeping it in Lua.
