 * This implements a sort of variable repository. One could also think of it
 * as a cheap version of an associative array. In each one of these
 * datastructures you can store name/value pairs.  There can also be an
 * "assign hook" function that is called whenever the variable's value is
 * changed.
 * An "unset" operation causes the hook to be called with newval == NULL.
 * Note: if value == NULL then the variable is logically unset, but we are
 * keeping the struct around so as not to forget about its hook function.
