Are value types supposed to work at all currently?

Hi Simon,

it may be worth mentioning that there are other projects/approaches like
IBM's PackedObjects or Gil Tene's ObjectLayout which solve at least a part
of the problems which are addressed more generally by ValueTypes.

I compared them in a talk that I was giving at FOSDEM (did we actually met
there?) and JPoint: http://progdoc.de/papers/JPoint2015/jpoint2015.html

Incidentally I'll also give this talk tomorrow at JEE Conf in Kiev so if
you should be around you're very welcome;)

Regards,
Volker
