I don't know any example of a method in Cocoa which may or not release
the class depending on something. If it surely frees the class, then
you can set MyObject.Handle to nil before freeing it. Else there
exists no problem.

I'm building a nice way to create Cocoa apps in Pascal, not a generic
object-oriented objective-c bridge.

The main aim is creating a Lazarus-Cocoa widgetset, and maybe adding
some Cocoa to the LCL-Carbon widgetset to get TTrayIcon implemented.

I personally consider my bindings good enougth to be used to create
pure Cocoa applications, but I have no need to develop Cocoa specific
