Me, too. I'm stuck at the same point.

I wanted to try to add reference counting so that
finalizers can be called deterministically. This
wouldn't work for cycles. The GC would still have to
call finalizers in that case. Also, the GC would still
be responsible for managing memory. I'd just like to
know that, in the absence of cycles, my finalizers will
be called as soon as the last reference is released.

I'd still like to try to do that research (especially
the performance impacts). I'd rather not have to build
a linux box just to build mono. If you get an answer,
please post it. I would also appreciate getting an
answer, too.
