Commenting on thread to agree with this.
The only thing I really want as far as GC goes in D is more hooks
in to pointer acquire and release. From there, I can get the
task-based async collector going that I have in mind. GC is fine,
but not when it's unconfigurable for my uses.
(I'm generally against library solutions like refcounted
templates, this can 100% be solved with runtime hooks)
