Richard is pointing out that globals are, well, global to the Rev
environment. In fact, they are variables that are the property of the Rev
app, not any one stack or stack file. This means that if you declare a
global, fill it with "a pony", the pony won't die until you quit Rev or
delete the global by using...
delete global gANiceWarmStable
It feels better to fill globals with things like "the unexpectedly-high
heating bill", then quit Rev.
The default is that globals live in memory as long as Rev is running.
