RESOURCES: Portable implementation of resources.
Resources are useful for avoid excessive consing and GCing by explicitly
maintaining pools of objects for reuse, instead of creating them when
needed and relying on the garbage collector to flush them when they are
no longer needed. When an object is no longer needed, it is returned
to the pool of objects of that type, and recycled when a new object
of that type is needed. Using resources might wind up recycling objects
faster than incremental GC, but it isn't clear whether there are
any real time/space savings.
