> So I have a working patch...  But unfortunately it doesn't really make sense to ever have an OwnPtr<RenderObject> as RenderWidget (a RenderObject subclass) expects to be ref-counted. :(

RenderWidget is an odd duck. It would be nicer if all RenderObjects were refcounted in part so we could avoid the strangeness of Widget being refcounted while being part of a class hierarchy that generally uses single ownership.

However, OwnPtr<RenderWidget> would still do the right thing, because RenderWidget overloads destroy() to actually deref() - it kind of has to anyway to interoperate with even the manual render tree memory management. See RenderWidget::destroy in RenderWidget.cpp.
