FYI a number of constants including BytesPerWord and BaseHeaderSize
are replaced by message sends in VMM trunk as part of the changes
that put this all under compile time control (as opposed to defining
at code generation time). It would probably be good to apply these
changes to oscog at some point also, although I cannot realistically
offer to put any time into it right now.
