AFAIR there already were several debates on ARC Objects that seem do be 
a "modern" language feature but in Pascal language they are considered 
to provide lots of pitfalls.

Why not use "interface" to add ref-counting to an object ? This seems to 
work nicely even though the name "interface" in not "speaking" on that
