Perl's global destruction is a little tricky to deal with WRT finalizers
because its not ordered and objects can sometimes disappear.
Writing defensive destructors is hard and annoying, and usually if global
destruction is happenning you only need the destructors that free up non
process local resources to actually execute.
For these constructors you can avoid the mess by simply bailing out if
global destruction is in effect.
