Description

18 years ago
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.
