I don't feel strongly either way. My expectation for global references
is that they should mainly be used for the module equivalent of defvar
and friends, in which case the bug isn't that severe because nobody
needs millions of defvars. OTOH, people might use global references
for other means, including allocating them dynamically, in which case
leaking them can become annoying.
