First off, great to hear from you. I hope you are well.

As I try to interpret what you are saying, I read it that this is
somewhat theoretical. You were aware of limitations in the number of
local refs so you made it a policy to clean them up. However, given
that we do not create that many during a method call, and the methods
always return to the JVM which should then clean them up
automatically, aren't Blair's optimizations valid to make to the code?
