/** `DynamicVariables` provide a binding mechanism where the current
* value is found through dynamic scope, but where access to the
* variable itself is resolved through static scope.
*
* The current value can be retrieved with the value method. New values
* should be pushed using the `withValue` method. Values pushed via
* `withValue` only stay valid while the `withValue`'s second argument, a
* parameterless closure, executes. When the second argument finishes,
* the variable reverts to the previous value.
*
* {{{
* someDynamicVariable.withValue(newValue) {
* // ... code called in here that calls value ...
* // ... will be given back the newValue ...
* }
* }}}
*
* Each thread gets its own stack of bindings. When a
* new thread is created, the `DynamicVariable` gets a copy
* of the stack of bindings from the parent thread, and
* from then on the bindings for the new thread
* are independent of those for the original thread.
