> The .NET Binding for Messaging could be made more user-friendly with the addition of
a property that indicates whether or not the underlying binding is still available. A C# coder
may innocently write:
> (1)  Message mA = new Message("a");
> (2)  Message mB = mA;
>      ...
> (N)  mB.Dispose();
> After disposing of message mB then message mA is clobbered. 'Message' is a 'ref class'
type and messages mA and mB refer to the same object on managed heap. When message mB is disposed
then the bound C++ Messaging object is deleted [1]. Any reference to the bound message part
of mA will result in an illegal memory reference (to 0) and a process exit. The .NET runtime
can't catch this fault.
> The obvious answer is not to do that. If the second line of code was 'Message mB = new
Message(mA)' then mA and mB would have been completely separate and disposing of either would
have no effect on the other.
> Another answer is to have the binding check for a null binding reference on each and
every access and then to throw if the underlying binding is gone. This is not very appealing
from a performance standpoint.
> As a compromise I would like to add a property isBound to each class. Users then have
a fighting chance to check that the binding is still in effect and that function calls on
the object shouldn't blow up. This property would be useful in Assert statements or in debugging.
> [1] If anyone knows how to have my binding library intercept example code line (2) and
create reference counts, please let me know.
