I am not a language expert but I can't imagine how the compiler knows
whether an event will happen at runtime. Imagine a server program
allocates memory for a client. Let's say, that memory will be
deallocated when the client logs out or the server times that client
out. The compiler cannot know either of that will ever happen, right?
