I believe the two things that have been done to combat this "sore spot"
for rails (that it sometimes GC's more than once per request ) are
1) patch gc.c so that it collects less frequently [i.e. sets the
collection frequency to be every 40MB instead of 8). Kind of hard using
extensions only :)
2) have rails GC only every X requests (fastcgi does this, I think).
It might make a difference in performance.
