SGen isn't the default because it's not quite mature enough yet. Needs more
work and more testing. It should become the default with Mono 3.0, if the
plans don't change until then.

"To use the new garbage collector, you just need to invoke Mono with the
--gc=sgen command line option, or set the MONO_ENV_OPTIONS environment
variable to contain "--gc=sgen" option. By default Mono continues to use the
Boehm collector."
