 Summary: WeakReference.TrackResurrection not implemented
-OtherBugsDependingOnThis: 61703
 mono/metadata/gc.c does not treak HANDLE_WEAK_TRACK weakrefs any
 different from HANDLE_WEAK ones, meaning that WeakReferences with
 resurrection tracking don't actually work. (They behave exactly
 the same as WeakReferences without resurrection tracking.)

 This would be somewhat hard to implement, since the underlying libgc
 does not have support for this.

+sigh. ok, i think there'd still be a race condition making it not
+work for us anyway.
+(leaving the bug open since it's still a bug that we don't
+implement this though.)
