Re: #1--if you're interested, Perl 5.6 has (experimental) support for weak references, meaning that you can use circular references (as one example) and have the standard garbage collection work for you. A weak reference doesn't increment the reference count of the thing to which it refers.

You'll need the WeakRef module.
