Hi Armin, Maciej

Thanks for responding.

I'm in the process of trying to determine what (if any) of the code I'm in

Allowing hinting to the GC would be good. Even better would be a means to
allow me to (transparently) allocate objects in unmanaged memory, but I
would expect that to be a tall order :)
