Originally my goal was to compete with Node.JS but then I realized BB++
could be used to parse entire C++ projects to fix all memory leaks.

I didn't see the whole presentation but I read the documentation in
diagonal and it seems deferred_ptr is slower than shared_ptr and is
single threaded only; you also need to add heaps explicitly.

root_ptr is the exact opposite: it is faster than shared_ptr, is
multithreaded and it uses the same user-defined allocator. That's why I
am able to write a parser; because root_ptr uses the same pattern.

Thus deferred_ptr is far from being production-quality whereas root_ptr
is already a step behind. I just need to add some metadata in the parser
to generated classes, support templates in the parser and perhaps try to
remove the 'mutable qualifier' in root_ptr.
