I'm not sure I follow: Are you saying I could wrap the
ObjectId/ReferenceTypeId with a weak reference (who is associated with
another ReferenceQueue) for collection?

I guess I could do that, yeah. So then I'd have two WeakHashMaps of
Object/Class -> ID tables, where WeakHashMap automagically wraps the
Object/Class in a WeakReference.

For the other tables (Long -> ID), I wrap the ID in a WeakReference
(with a specified queue). So when the Object/Class is garbage collected,
its entry in the WeakHashMap is lost, there is no longer any strong
reference to the ID and it will be garbage collected, too.

Yeah, that seems like it might work. I've attached a new patch which
incorporates these changes.
