This seems like a very solid proposal. I like that the finalizers run on
their own turn (it had to be that way in retrospect).
I'm unclear about one thing: the reasoning for not running finalizers when
weak-references them become unreferenced. Did I misunderstand this?
Doesn't this force he "hard" reference to also a soft reference "weak
reference" to insure that finalizer run (such as closing a file, etc)? If
aren't concerned about non-memory resources is there any point to having
holding at all?
