Nice, good presentation. I actually learned some things!

What is the current state of @live?
Any edge cases to be aware of?

Thanks

One remark I found interesting regarding reference counting.

"In order to properly run the destructor, you have to run the destructor in an exception handler"

Why do you need to run the destructor in an exception handler?

I assume it's to ensure that objects are destroyed properly when unwinding the stack. Might be possible to avoid in `nothrow` code.

No, you had it right. It's the inherent limitation of MS Teams!
