yes you can.  Fuck rules, read code :)

Anyway, moot point.  I know your argument, all I'm saying is that while
it may not be right (you say so, I don't) it DOES work.

My point is.  IF code doesn't sink in init, things still work if you only use
ref/unref.  That is, you NEVER call sink.  If it's correct or not, who cares.
It DOES work.

/me bangs Havocs head against wall a bit for good meassure

Anyway ... I do ref/sink in such objects in my code.  And it was not my
argument.  However my code worked perfectly before I did this, because I
wasn't sinking anything anywhere.
