If I understood correctly, it's a pointer that
1) counts references from the stack or data segment only
2) auto-unites different "sets"
So maybe something along the line of "heap_set_ptr" covers its
functionality. I'm curious about the union behaviour: couldn't this be
causing a huge delay for deallocation? Can it be turned off?
