Do you mean a *disk* garbage collector or an application-level garbage
Concerning the rest: yes, many parts *could* be split out. It is not
always useful to do so. There are two competing design rules:
For security purposes you want objects to be as small and simple
For human maintainability, you want objects and libraries to consist
of some "natural" size that captures a coherent piece of function in
a way that can be maintained.
