   Since modules have absolute names that can be typed in any time, they
can't be garbage-collected any more correctly than global variable bindings
(i.e. you can't because "references" can exist external to the computer's 
in the future typing of the user).
   Unless I'm mistaken about the absolute naming, of course.
