Given two proxy references in the same environment, the system must ensure that if two proxies wrap the same object as the same interface, the references point to the same proxy object. This latter restriction, in the Java world, will require a table of proxies with weak references to each Java proxy instance. Since weak references are only supported in Java 2, to work on Macintosh it may be sufficient that each Java object refers to the same index in a C++ proxy table. C++ proxies must also be registered in a table as weak references, to prevent reference counting cycles.
