$recycler, $garbage, etc

Is there any reason to "recycle" objects (parent them to $garbage and re-use)
 other than keeping down max_object()?  Is that benefit really anything but an
 aesthetic one?

I'm thinking I'd have a lot less trouble on my MOO if I just used built-in
 recycle() and create(): Quicker, less chance for blown creation and
 destruction routines, no book-keeping problems with re-created objects.

I'd still use the $recycler wrappers, of course, to restrict use of the
 builtins.  But, I repeat in closing, is there a good functional reason
 to re-create?
