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?
