The proposal was to use the same uninterned symbol for all loops and
keep it in a global variable like tmp-loop-var.  And that means, of
course, that everybody able to access that global variable can also
use it to access the loop variable.  You don't need to go through
obarray, the symbol _is_ already available in tmp-loop-var without
