I see no obvious flaws for this proposal (except, obviously, relying on  
accessing destroyed objects). Perhaps you should repost this in the  
digitalmars.D newsgroup for higher visibility?

Either way, here's an alternate suggestion: add the objects in unmanaged  
memory to the list of GC roots. If you use a bulk allocator, you can make  
the allocator add the whole pool.

Best regards,
