The spec (.13) currently doesn't make any statement about its handle
uniqueness. It's not clear whether, within a connection, a handle alone
identifies a resource uniquely or if only a tuple (handle_type, handle)
By the methods' signatures the second option seens to be the case, but I
think that having handle uniqueness (instead of per type) would make the
spec more elegant (as a handle alone would have a unique ID status,
which is a widespread concept) and you would also discard the
handle_type parameter from HoldHandles, InspectHandles and ReleaseHandles.
Anyway, regardless of what option is finally chosen, the uniqueness
concept adopted must be clearly stated in the spec.
