MPS issue job001154

TitleMPS documentation gives no guidance for when client wants foreign code to use mps-allocated memory
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionConfigura want to make a certain third-party plugin use mps-allocated memory. Managing its lifetime is tricky. There is a good trick (that we should document): DRJ's "two-stage solution" in <>. (Trick: manually free, but also have finalisation to free it if you forget). There may be more we should document.
AnalysisWe should talk to Configura to learn what issues they faced, and still face, doing this. We should write and publish documentation that helps MPS client programmers get this right.
