CogVM binaries as per VMMaker.oscog-eem.333/r2776
* Speed-up Newspeak significantly (e.g. -28% in one compile-intensive
by maintaining unpaired methods (compilations of anonymous accessors) on a
linked list instead of searching the entire method zone.
* Make primitiveObjectAtPut fail if changing the header word and the
new header has a different literal count. Avoids crashing the VM
when inadvertently changing the header, as a Newspeak bootstrap
* Implement frameless inst var store from arguments, so e.g.
Point>>setX:Y: is frameless.
* Add Cogit support for clean blocks by scanning literals looking for
BlockClosures on the current method.
