Actually, Mathematica objects are reference counted. (Section A.9.2 
"Data Structures and Memory Management" of the Mathematica 5.2 
Documentation says, that "Every piece of memory used by Mathematica 
maintains a count of how many times it is referenced. Memory is 
automatically freed when this count reaches zero.")
