[squeak-dev] Squeak 6.0 alpha-20601 SpaceTally crashes due to SharedPool dNu #values

When trying a SpaceTally in the 20601 image it fails because a SharedPool does not understand #values. See SpaceTally>>#computeSpaceUsage and SpaceTally>>#spaceForPoolsOf:depth:seen: which appears to have been changed from the 5.3 code at the end of last year. Guess that shows how long since I last tried it in a 6.0alpha image...

Simple fix suggestion -

Yes, one could simply implement #values in SharedPool but I consider decently descriptive message names to be very helpful in understanding what is going on. Otherwise we might as well just use numbers...
