Is there a value to instanciate the Reflect module several times? So
far, it's only made of stateless methods, it would save memory to have
only one Reflect object in my opinion.

If modules aren't the tool to share a single object across other
modules, what is such a tool? Because it seems to be a valid use case.
Likewise for the same of interoperability, if there is an @handler
module, it ought to be a unique function (otherwise, two instances of
two different @handler constructors do not share the same prototype).
