      Description

      Allowing pre- and post-gc heap verification in product builds (and the ability
      to switch the controlling boolean via jconsole) would help chase down
      gc-related bugs in production deployments without the need to ship and
      install an instrumented jvm. Fastdebug jvm's are notoriusly bad at
      reproducing production errors, so having the capability in a product
      build is desirable for easy reproduction and diagnosis of production
      heap corruption errors.
