You are perfectly right.
So you should try to avoid heavy ref counting (i.e focusing / defocusing
ref counted stuff, including Strings) in multithreaded code. Problem:
the programmer can't easily see where focusing / defocusing is done.
OTOH, ref counted objects can reduce the programming effort when
thread-local instances are necessary.
Depreciating ref counted objects for multithred-performance means to
depreciate Strings as well. ;-)
