What I described above certainly conforms to the accepted definition of
"generational behaviour" -- most objects die young -- in this case
it turns out that the small fraction of objects that do not die very young die in middle
age; they are not "long-lived" for some notion of "long".

In fact this would be a highly generational application that never needs
to use the older generation.

I guess i entangled generational configurations and generational behaviour
and hence my confused ramblings for which my apologies ... :-)
