// You can still call Dispose(). It will free the c++ memory immediately, but not the
// C# memory! You then must be careful not to call any member functions as it will
// use a NULL c pointer on the underlying c++ object. We set the C# object to null
// which will then throw a C# exception should we attempt to use it again.
