FOOPReference template

After loading this code:

;; FOOPReference template

(context 'FOOPReference)

;; indices of elems in FOOP list

  (let (ref_contextSym (new-ref-context-sym))
    (prefix (sym ref_contextSym ref_contextSym)))); without switching to new ctx
;; standard functor: each call increases foopCount

  (letn ((ref_context (new-ref-context)) ; increments foopCount

This technique can be used for multiple FOOPReference classes like MyFoop in the example; each getting its own FOOP reference namespace (e.g. FirstFOOP_1, FirstFOOP_2, ...; SecondFOOP_1, SecondFOOP_2, ...) and its own delete-* funcs (only deleting its own references).
