That is right, the base class Chuck_VM_Object has it, which suggest  
common reference types have it.

OK. So then all that discussion on how avoiding leaks were  
unnecessary. Do you what isn't reference counted?

That would bomb, so hopefully chuck does not have it.

Reference counts can't collect circular object. But then you need a  
way to create them, as in linked lists. And if a circular object has  
destructors, it is anyway unclear in which order they should be called.
