Re: Stack refcount synopsis
Message ID:
At the risk of appearing trolling, I'd like to reiterate that another
possibility is to abandon reference counting altogether and
instead switch to the boehm gc, just to see how well/poorly that performs.
The immediately obvious downside would be that
some thought would have to go into which of the various reliable
destruction order expectations to support, which might require
keeping some reference counting around anyway, at least for things that can
be proven at compile-time to go out of scope, but
that isn't really dynamic reference counting.
