You are right, I did miss most of this point. I did get the feel of
having different scopes with the different kinds of PRIV pointers, but
not to this extent.

In this case I might have to revisit the docs since I initially wrote
them with the VCL's lifespan in mind in the "I'll take care of it
myself" case before the 4.1 release.
