A particular area of interest was the use of pointer-free region-based storage management which eliminates the need for a garbage collector. Rust has per-task heaps which are garbage collected, but in a single-threaded environment, plus a global heap which is managed more like one of ParaSail's regions, where all pointers into the global heap are unique/owned pointers. Setting such a pointer to null allows immediate reclamation of the associated storage, preventing accumulation of any garbage.
