This class can be used to keep track of references to variable values.

It can manage a collection of references to variables by adding and removing them to a list of reference values.

The class can also check if a reference value already belongs to the collection.

References are a sort of pointers that point to the value of a variable. They can be treated as variables but changing their values just changes the original variable they point to.

This class provides a solution to manipulate collections of references to variables.

It can be useful if you want to manipulate the values of variables without duplicating the memory space that would take if you used copies of the original values instead of references.
