    // We can destroy the unmanaged part of collectible type only after the managed part is definitely gone and thus
    // nobody can call/allocate/reference anything related to the collectible assembly anymore. A call to finalizer
    // alone does not guarantee that the managed part is gone. A malicious code can keep a reference to some object
    // in a way that that survives finalization, or we can be running during shutdown where everything is finalized. 
    // The unmanaged LoaderAllocator keeps a reference to the managed LoaderAllocator in long weak handle. If the long 
    // weak handle is null, we can be sure that the managed part of the LoaderAllocator is definitely gone and that it 
    // is safe to destroy the unmanaged part. Unfortunately, we can not perform the above check in a finalizer on the
    // LoaderAllocator, but it can be performed on a helper object. 
    // The finalization does not have to be done using CriticalFinalizerObject. We have to go over all LoaderAllocators
    // during AppDomain shutdown anyway to avoid leaks e.g. if somebody stores reference to LoaderAllocator in a static.
