    32 *Array PMCs need to have their mark VTABLE methods updated to actually mark the elements inside them. src/gc/mark_sweep.c:Parrot_gc_trace_pmc_data() attempts to do this by mucking around with PMC_data_typed(). Once the mark VTABLE methods are updated to do The Right Thing, Parrot_gc_trace_pmc_data() can be deprecated along with the PObj_data_is_PMC_array_FLAG. All arrays should instead be marked with PObj_custom_mark_FLAG to call the proper mark VTABLE methods.

    3432* src/gc/mark_sweep.c also uses PMC_struct_val in two places.  This needs to be investigated and the data stored elsewhere.  See TT #178.
