Coorect.

 Do then all use an identical API?

"Do they all work exactly as the doc describes?"  My guess is probably not
_exactly_ as the doc describes.   But all in all, its close.   IMHO your
documentation is good enough for this stage of the project.  Note that the
GC/JIT/VM interface will evolve as time goes on.  Thus its impossible to
have an absolutely perfect document.  Thanks for cleaning it up.

Thank you,
