This library provides object references for Ruby as well as some common
utilities for working with references. Object references are used to point to
other objects and come in three distinct flavors (weak, soft, and strong),
that interact differently with the garbage collector.
It also includes an implementation of maps and hashes that use references and
a reference queue.
