I just watched [1] on Gemstone's object format and was interested to see 
how it uses 000 in the low order bits for direct in-memory object 
pointers.  I presume Spur does something similar but was curious how it 
specifically compares.

Also, probably not a good idea but I wondered what pros/cons there might 
be to just adopting Gemstone's object format.
