They should be garbage collectable because record objects may retains each 
For example, object B have a relation to object B and B have a relation to A. 
So each one 'retain' the other.
in gdl2, retain/release and gc are used but gc apply only on objects which may 
reference each others.

There's no garbage collection in Cocoa ? In this case, may be you could try to 
adapt gnustep 
extension GC* objects.
