There's one use of talloc_reference that that I would defend: It's in
tdb_wrap. There it's impossible that anybody outside of this small
piece of code can be affected. The alternative would have been an
explicit refcount, but that has its complexities too. If you confine
it like tdb_wrap does, it is essentially an explicit refcount with
other means.
