Squeak release image contains around 15k Points with none using more
than 24 bits per coordinate.
On 64-bit machines, it should be possible to pack two integers of a pair
into a single immediate word - 30+30.
Has anyone tried to do this? It would save space and eliminate object
alloc. But I am not sure about the overall performance hit.
