Yes, this is true, so the current "absence of ivars disables dealloc
check" functionality should work with singletons as well, so no
special cases needed. My original statement ("e.g. singletons don't
need dealloc") was incorrect. But anyway, thanks for correction and
quick implementation of these checks.
