To persist or not to persist

Well the answer to that question is rather simple.  If you had to
explicitly save than it would not be persistant storage.  At a high level
however, we must understand that as far as the programming language and
compiler/interpreter are concerned, whatever the programmer does is
correct in the first place.  Therefore, you should probably just stick
with persistant storage and explicite deletion.
