> Objective-C in Xcode 4.2 supports ARC (Automatic Reference Counting, not GC but similar)
and now it is the default both on OS X Lion and iOS 5. (ARC works on iOS 4.2 or higher.)
> The conventional Objective-C code includes many retain/release/autorelease for maintaining
 the life time of objects.
> Since the latest Objective-C compiler automatically generates stubs for reference counting,
code should not include any retain/release/autorelease.
> Many Mac OS/iOS projects are moving to ARC mode. Although we can specify a compiler flag
which tells ARC or no-ARC file by file in Xcode 4.2, there is no means to tell the Xcode that
files generated by the thrift compiler are no-ARC. Xcode produces many error messages like
"retain is not allowed in ARC mode". 
> So, the thrift compiler should support ARC mode.
> What we need are:
> 1) add -objc-arc flag to the thrift compiler.
> 2) If -objc-arc flag exists, omit generating code for retain/release/autorelease.
> Please look at "Programming with ARC reference notes" in iOS developer library.
