Look at the old thread for Philip's arguments. As far as I'm
concerned, we need an indirect pointer to support wide-int
Lisp_Objects on 32bit platforms. Global reference can still be made
with the current code. We have a reference counting hash-table to keep
track of them. Non-global refs are marked explicitely in case the GC
misses them.
