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)
