You seem to be suggesting that "tuning the GC" is considered "alternative" only
for OCaml programs.

You seem to be suggesting that "tuning the GC" is considered "alternative" for
every task.

Neither is true.

You seem to be suggesting some kind of equivalence between vector instructions
and "tuning the GC".
You haven't said why they should be considered equivalent.

Nor have you said why you think C should not be allowed to use memory pools.
