However, I will add that if I *did* need an unload for anything,
I would think the XlispStat semantics: unloading the module
immediately and making any dangling references into exceptions,
or replacing them with references to a reloaded module,
would seem to be more useful than not really unloading it until
all of the references are decremented (if ever) and then
I can't think of a case where I would want to unload a module,
where I would not want a dangling reference to something in that
module to generate an exception.
