Sounds way harder to me.  There's no good way to separate temp objects
made by the script from those made earlier in the session.  Also, the
general theory of extension scripts is that they're just executed
normally, with the only additional bit of magic being that objects
created during the script are tied to the extension.  I'm not sure that
forcibly dropping temp objects at the end fits in that charter at all.

But I think fixing it to not recurse to extensions during temp namespace
cleanup might not be very hard.  I'll take a look.
