Some people keep saying: even though having the GC is great, sometimes
it's necessary to manually manage memory. But any time that argument
is raised and someone mentions library support for manual memory
management, the opposition says "if you want to manage memory, do it
on your own, end of story."

Don't ask me why /I'd/ need that, right now I don't. But others have
raised this issue more than once.
