Description

I came across this gem today:

http://github.com/banister/free

Which led me to wonder if it might not be good to have this feature built-in to the core language. While not useful in most cases, it could be very useful to power-users who need to eek out every bit performance they can.

While it might be considered useful from some brave power users, we are not going to add such unsafe features to the core.
Use the gem.

And, of course, the gem is not guaranteed across revisions.
