True. It of course should not trigger the garbage collection process 
(AFAIK, this is possible by a certain API call, but totally 
inappropriate to do so for every pascalish "free").

Nonetheless it seems viable to instruct the garbage collector that the 
memory assigned to the instance can be collected when it runs next time.
