It's not that it can't deal with them. It's that it treats them as any other 

Adding a type constructor that says "this pointer is a GC pointer" is a major 
escalation in complexity of the language. Other languages have done it (see 
Microsoft's "Managed C++") but I don't think it caught on because I haven't 
heard much about it in years.
