-Some history (Chris):
-As a first approach to break this thing down, I slottified
-all of these objects. The result was not overwhelming:
-A savingof 5MB, but four percent of slowdown, since object
-comparison got much more expensive, by lacking a __dict__.
-So I trashed 8 hours of work, without a check-in. (Just
-writing this here to leave *some* trace of work).
-Then I tried to make all instances unique and wrote a lot
-of attribute tracking code here, locked write access
-outside of __init__, and patched many modules and several
-hundred lines of code.
-Finally I came up with a better concept, which is postponed.
 class SomeObject:
     """The set of all objects.  Each instance stands
     for an arbitrary object about which nothing is known."""
