As a long time advocate of "the simplest thing that will work", I am 
wondering at what your goal and purpose is here.  What cool things are 
you doing/adding that require a write barrier?

Perhaps you should be looking at VMMaker and doing things at the VM 
level?  If so, you might make a case in the vm-dev mailing list for 
direct support.
