I don't know who wants to review it, but if people want me to, Ok.  The idea is that if ObjC is the last remaining user in tree for boehm-gc, then reasonably I'm the last man standing.  Of course, if others want to review approve the patch, I'm fine with that.  

I'm fine with patches to externalize boehm-gc if people want to push that direction.
