You can disable automatic memory management in vala by using the
--disable-memory-management command-line option. I've also added ref and
unref methods to GLib.Object, so you can leak as much memory as you want
now ;)

Just to be sure, these (methods ref and unref) aren't available in the
current svn 249, are they ? if they are, I can't find a way to use
them in anyway...
