HybridWeakMap

trait~ HybridWeakMap

Drop-in replacement for WeakMap that can store primitives.

new
const m = new HybridWeakMap([['foo', 42], ]);

Normally WeakMaps cannot store primitive values like Strings or Numbers; this is mostly an implementation detail and there still are some use cases where one would wish to store primitives in a weak map even though those primitive values won't be garbage collected.a

This is what HybridWeakMap is for: It simply contains two maps; one Weak map for objects, and one normal Map for primitives...
