Ping :-).  Still looking for reviews.

I updated the webrev after two minor changes:  (a) the new versions of
insert_deadspace() in psMarkSweepDecorator.cpp and space.cpp now mark
the object live as the old versions did, and (b) fixed a typo in
fill_with_array in collectedHeap.cpp (no semantic change).  If anyone
looked at the previous version and would like more details on these,
let me know.


P.S.:  I'll be on vacation until Tue, Dec 2.
