OK. Lets assume that solving the destruction problem is not the library
writer's problem.

Assume also that the library supplies a once_flag, a call_once function that
returns the same result every time, but only calls the function once, and
once_init, once_reset and once_destroy. Each once_flag must be passed to
once_destroy in order to clean up the stored return value.

As a user of this library, how do I ensure that every once_flag is correctly
cleaned up?
