The latter is not true.
(Has all of this "delete" stuff happened because I didn't make that
clear in the documentation?)
No. I actually understood all that about how the Bomb package works.
(Although I'm still curious about what happens if a member destructor
BLASTs--is it as bad as if a member constructor BLASTs?) I should
have said that C++ doesn't allow "delete" to be *silently* refused.
"delete" also has other problems (mostly cfront, not language def).
