More testing?  Or a code audit of PHP perhaps...

If we have an example which shows a problem, it should be easy to fix.
Without an example, there's a lot of places to have to check.

Xapian shouldn't be able to create reference loops (certainly not
involving WritableDatabase which is the only case where it actually
matters).  So provided the SWIG glue destroys the C++ objects it
holds, they'll release their references to other objects which will
then get destroyed, and so on.
