Yes, that's a very good point and gives one everything to manually 
manage memory and be sure the GC doesn't jump in.

If a mixed memory management model is used, the programmer needs to 
understand the side-effects and what happens if the GC jumps in and 
take full responsibility.

So, I don't like this change at all. KISS.
