cyclic



I'd like to suggest a small change to the Limbo language:  replace the
keyword ``cyclic'' with something like `selftype'.  The semantics of
Limbo do not allow the programmer to create cyclic data structures using
ref, so this keyword is likely to cause some confused expectations about
program behavior.  In any case, if this keyword is significant to the
scheduling of the gc, a substitute that's clearer for the programmer
will be, too.
