Sorry to make fuss about something as trivial as language,
but surely you mean "alternative" not "alternate". A copying garbage
collector will alternate between two heap spaces, or a mark-sweep
garbage collector will alternate between the mark and sweep
phases, but I suspect that this is not what you meant. Alternate
as an adjective usually means "the other of two" not "different".
