I think it would be beneficial to have some minimal explanations and
instructions wrt when these "scoped" Lisp objects can/should and
cannot/shouldn't be used.  The current commentary doesn't explain
enough about the difference between these "scoped" objects and the
other kind, and I'm not sure we want the future hackers to try to
guess that.
