microsoft haa memory system where you can addref / release things.  they
then maintain a reference count.  when the reference count is zero, you
can clean-up.

i don't know if you want to consider adding a reference count system, but
it might help.

then again, if you addref too many times and don' release enough times,
the memory sticks around for ever.... not necesarily a good idea!
