Or do you mean one has to do this:

void leak(T)(T* ptr){}

@live void useGc()
{  auto ptr = new int(5);

Now when I think of it, it might make some sense. You obviously 
do not want this when all memory is garbage-collected or 
intentionally leaked. But if one has to use `free()` it might be 
worth the additional hassle.
