TH1::Build(), memory leakage

Dear users of ROOT

I would like to know why in TH1::Build() delete hold is commented. If one have a function which crates histogram with new then there is no (easy) way to avoid memory leakage.

Best regards,
Margar Simonyan

if (hold) {
 Warning("Build","Replacing existing histogram: %s (Potential memory leak).",GetName());
// delete hold;
