I only have looked documents in http://www.parrotcode.org, but they
indicates it will not use ref-counting.

"You're not using reference counting. Why not?" in
http://www.parrotcode.org/faq/

The doc is somewhat vague, but Parrot seems to use conservative
mark&sweep GC.  http://www.parrotcode.org/docs/pdd/pdd09_gc.html

There are a lot of people in academia in this list.  Maybe
OCaml->Parrot compiler is a good project for undergraduates?
