    7474Detail are in [http://community.haskell.org/~simonmar/papers/parallel-gc.pdf]. 
    7575The current computation seems to be the following: total words copied during parallel GCs divided 
    76 by the average over all parallel GCs of maximal number of words copied 
    77 by any thread in a single par GC. Events needed: the events added above probably suffice, 
     76by the sum over all parallel GCs of the maximal number of words copied 
     77by any thread in a given GC. Events needed: the events added above probably suffice, 
    7878but quite a bit of extra state will have to be maintained when reading 
    7979the events due to the rather complex formula for work balance.
