The definition is that only pointer classes can have named instance
variables. The CompiledMethod class is a special, fudged case dating from
the days when there were a rather limited number of oops available.
Word or Byte classes are not supposed to have, indeed should not allow,
We could fairly easily 'fix' CompiledMethods, with a minor saving in
complexity in various places including the garbage collector.
