It's not GC that makes it run faster, simply the allocation strategy
languages with GCs happen to use.
You can have "manual" memory management "as fast as GC". It's just that
it has other bad properties, such as requiring more memory than it
really needs to operate well: which is why it's not the default strategy
implementers happen to use in a language like C++.
