Store and retreive active connections from multiple locations in your code-base, keep connection alive as long as there are references to it. One all references are lost, the connection is terminated using the provided callback.
This module was designed to be used in a situation where a single connection might need to be shared amongst several places in the code, and should be automatically destroyed once there are no more references.
