Now I'm worried, this will break a lot of my code. I'm just not convinced that RefCounted is the correct tool for this job. It changes the allocator type. IAllocator is an interface for a reason. It allows swapping things out without worrying about implementation and using templates. If you go this route, I want a SwappableAllocator implementation like SwappableImage[0] is.

May break if you use the IAllocator type explicitly a lot; you need to change that name.

It may not because it gives access to the underlying interface, which I'd rather keep encapsulated. I think a hand-defined proxy struct around the IAllocator type is the ticket.

 using templates.
That won't go away. I guess I need to write the code to fully explain what's needed. Andrei
