specify Instance<T>#destroy()

                 Key: CDI-155
                 URL: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/CDI-155
             Project: CDI Specification Issues
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Beans
    Affects Versions: 1.0
            Reporter: Mark Struberg
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 1.1 (Proposed)

In CDI-14, Pete mentioned that
> We would need to extend Instance<> with a void destroy(T instance); method.

Ouch, very true. This is desperately needed for destroying @Dependent and other not-normalscoped beans which got created via Instance<T>#get(). 

This currently creates memory leaks because we have no way to dispose the CreationalContext<T> used for creating this very bean. And since the CreationalContext<T> also holds references to all Interceptors, Decorators and subsequently injected beans, those won't be released neither.
