I believe that boehm-gc permits to temporarily disable the GC for

By a quick look, it seems that ECL does not export such facility right
now, but would it be nonsense to eventually allow this for use by rare
but specific code sections which should ideally execute as predictably
as possible?

Hi Matthew, could you please file a support request with this? It can be done, but the interface is deprecated and now there is instead a wrapper function with a callback that supposedly is called with locks on and no GC. I would have to investigate it.
