Well I hadn't done much experimenting to comment - creating a GCHandle would 
mean it would contain a strong reference, but there's no need as it's easier 
to do it inside the managed code. I'm playing with the strongReferenceMap 
now, and the t1 hello world no longer works. So I think it will take a bit of 
time to get it working properly, especially if we need to trap all the method 
calls affecting strong references like Phil Thompson has suggested.
