A novel garbage collector that solves reference counting's cycle problems by introducing "regions", which demarcate possibly cyclic subgraphs. These regions are updated by merge and split operations that occur on pointer update and incrementally on region allocation, respectively, ie. adding a pointer to B into aggregate C merges their regions, and trying to allocate a new region first attempts to split some random candidate region by computing the local reference counts via union-find of the region's members.
