Herb's been banging a drum regarding alternative mechanisms for
allocation cleanup in C++ for as long as I can remember. I believe that
repo above was to demonstrate how easy it would be for C++ to
standardise some GC implementation based on the above.

I personally think he's wrong on standardised GC for C++, and so does
almost everyone else I know. But Herb has more than earned respect for
any opinion he takes on anything in my book.

And I appreciate that you feel plagiarised. But standards folk almost
never propose standardisation of their own inventions by definition. I
wouldn't take it personally.
