      Description

      The names gen0 and gen1 are not standard terminology for generations. They should really be called young and old generation. The names are referring to an array of generations, but since the code will break if this array is ever populated with more than two generations it should be removed. Renaming gen0 and gen1 to young and old is a preparation for that array removal.
