All these flags for stealing, allowing stealing, blah blah, are just
ways to do some kind of dumb reference counting without actually have a
reference count.  When it gets super complex like this, maybe
introducing a reference count is the way to go.  It would be a bigger
change, but perhaps more maintainable over time.
