comment How to debug weak references?
@Neil Basically it would be nice if there was a way to check if some object can be (or is) collected at given moment, and if not to show where it is still referenced...

comment If null is bad, why do modern languages implement it?
@DavidWallace 0 is not like null at all. 0 is valid member of its type (integers, rationals, real numbers etc.) while null has no type at all - it's a special marker.
