But is it an object on the heap with reference counting?

I read a number of articles on Lambda support in c++ and they seem to think in *some* instances the compiler can inline the lambda and see no speed penalty but they depends on it not being passed outside of the declaring scope. c++ may get away with this because you need to manually request captured variables.
