Large memory leaks.

See original GitHub issue

Describe the bug

Hey! Been using anime in A-Frame, an open source WebVR framework. Love it. Though there is a lot of memory leak that can lead to GC pauses.

Taken from a few seconds from the anime homepage, it’s allocated hundreds of kilobytes of memory garbage.

I believe this issue should be constrained to memory leaks versus unit testing, linting, and Typescript.

Alright, I’m going to focus on this for 3.1. I created a branch called memory plumbing, any help on this is welcome! Thanks !
