@holger Hm...interesting idea, but I'm not quite convinced. Even if it wasn't for performance reasons that #Rust has no GC, it's unique ownership model makes it very clear where *resources in general* are allocated and freed. Think of resources not only memory related, but also:
- file handles
- database connections
All of these resources are automatically handled (e.g. closed, freed etc), when it goes out of scope.
So Rust's complex rules are there for a reason. A GC would not change that, IMO.
