[fpc-devel] Suggestion: reference counted objects

I prefer the TARCObject approach too, i don't want anything to be
refcounted unless i *explicitly* ask for it (yes i know some things are
already refcounted and at the past i was bitten by that which is a big
reason why i don't want hidden things to do magic stuff behind my back).
Also i don' want a useless field in TObject (like a refcount field), object
instances are already too big IMO.
