You guys are seriously missing my point here.
The point is that we should make it simple and safe for a VMOD
Here is a director, please destroy it when...
[ ] This transaction is over
[ ] This VCL becomes cold
[ ] (Any other which might make sense)
[ ] I'l take care of it myself
And the reasone we should make it easy is *EXACTLY* to not hav
dangling pointers etc.
