ECL uses finalization for some datatypes (such as DLLs and streams). 
However, I was never sure about making a public interface for this 
feature because I am not sure that it is safe to run arbitrary, 
memory-allocating code, from these finalizers -- at least in the case of 
the old garbage collector; not sure about the Boehm-Weiser one.
