We don't currently, that's exactly the point of this thread.  We only 
reject it with the hack Richard posted here (and various other versions of 
that patch) and the question now is if we should reject it or not.  As 
there are different opinions even here we should be conservative and 
simply retain current behaviour, IMHO.  Certainly in order to make 
progress on the memory usage front until the C++ language side is cleared
