information as to the intention of a ref, or better still built in
automatic Bonobo ref counting support.

I think we can use some kind of lease. Objects are created with a lease (say 10 minutes) and the lease can be extended. Owning objects extend the lease (say every 5 minutes).

This doesn't require any special ORB hooks, X connections, or anything like that.
