Do we? Memory-allocation bugs are always a problem of discipline and
bad coding style. IMHO a good programmer doesn't need something
like a garbage collection. He knows what he have allocated.
With C++ we can wrap memory allocations in classes that handle memory
allocations correct. So perhaps it is time to switch over to C++.
