To be honest, I have to code it first then I can see the performance improvement.
There may be a possibility that the speed performance improvement is negative.
But if implemented well, users should be able to forget about the memory management totally.
BTW, circular referencing problem is the road block when we use RC most of time.
The luarc-51 project solved this problem by mixing GC and RC. GC works at the time when RC can not deal with
In my algorithm, circular referencing problem is solved directly by RC. Therefore, GC is not needed.
I don't know if this is the improvement, but will see soon.

Would it be good, show how reference counting can improve the actual garbage collector?
I'm not an expert in GC and this is a harder arena.
Your idea is applicable to add reference counting for the userdata objects?
