That was a bit terse. What I meant is that you could use the same 
library for both ARC and GC if you have a distinction between 
nonowning and owning pointers, and that this would be needed for 
efficient ARC/precise GC. If you also attatch a magic hidden 
template parameter to functions then you can have one thread 
using ARC and another one using a thread local GC using the same 
templated libraries.
