[Vm-dev] extending every header by a word

Hi Michael,

I was reading your mind. :)  The very first thing I did was to subclass SystemTracer2 and pry it apart to see what I needed to do.  I will set the vatId to 1 and a few other flags in that new header.  I think I have my SystemTracer specified, but I have to wait until I get the vm together, before I can trace the image and test it.

I also think I have a grasp on what needed to change in the vm...not so bad, for now.  I just need to make all senders of the instantiation protocols use the new ones which specify a vat header.

this is just one thing that immediately pops up in my mind... you will
have to convert *all* objects in the *entire* image before you will be
able to use them again.
