I think that would work nicely.

Yeah, the problem is that these functions are notifying/not notifying  
more than just GC. How about notifyingHandshakes?

I really do think Nicely and Dangerously are too vague, I'd much
prefer longer names that meant something (especially using an IDE like
Eclipse which will do the typing for me - I long ago gave up using a
teletype which hurt my fingers typing).

Of course, if you do use more expressive names, it will be important
to ensure that the name and the function remain in step.

The native thread locking classes use terms like "nicely" and
"dangerously" to denote whether or not the GC is notified when the
given method causes the thread to block.  I cannot think of better
terms.  On the other hand, I have no strong attachment to the current
naming scheme.  Various people have spoken up about this, but I've
lost track of what naming people wanted.

So.  If you think that the current naming scheme is bad, what would
you prefer?  If I don't hear any opinions, I'll keep it as-is.
