well, right, I was thinking of the relationship between _ptr (proxy) and
servant, not of the _ptr <-> proxy relationship.
I don't think _ptr means that the object in question is a pointer to a
proxy (and the _ptr <-> _var distinction really is about the proxy
management), but pointer-to-the-servant. In that sense there is no
semantic difference between _ptr and _var.
Anyways, I don't really have any preference, so if everybody here would
be more comfortable with _ref I can certainly switch. I just don't want
to go back and forth all day :-)
