That explains everything... but then, how do we delete arrays?

I had NO IDEA that was the case!! (see below)

I actually did have a reason, but I was misunderstanding the situation. I used
void[]'s in places where I did not want ubyte[]s to be interpreted as numbers,
so that they would not be dereferenceable. (To me, a void[] could contain
binary *data*, whereas a ubyte[] logically means that it contains numbers --
and while it's OK to reference a number in a list, it's *not* OK to me to just
randomly reference an arbitrary block of data, which might contain code inside
a buffer.)
Of course, I wasn't understanding their meaning correctly, so I won't do that
anymore; thank you very much for the explanation!!
