Well, if nogc is going to be an alternative to C++/Rust then 
something has to be done as interfacing implies a  of risk 
confusing gc memory with nongc memory. Most interesting code is 
building a graph of some sort.

Basically, it should be easy to write a library that is both 
nongc and gc at the same time.

It implies that owning pointers basically has to be templated, 
with a retention mechanism for nogc code.
