This patch makes the GC untrack tuples that
contain no GC objects.  Unfortunately it doesn't seem
to help much.  The time for the 'storetups' case of seems be about twice as fast (matching
Daniel Dunbar result).  Loading a number of complex
MEMS Exchange web pages causes the size of gen2 to go
up to 120000 instead of 134000 without the patch.

This change doesn't seem to be worth making.

I'm not since it doesn't seem to help much.  It looks like
no one else is either.  Closing it.

Unassigned.  I agree with closing it, BTW -- it wasn't hot or 
cold, it just seemed so neutral it was depressing <wink>.
