I understand where the 10K of download-size comew from, but do you know
why it also impacts the final binary size?  I mean: the objects and
variables created by these redundant autoloads should be overwritten by
the subsequent load of the actual files, so the only impact they should
have is if the GC ends up unable to reuse the corresponding memory cells
(and unable to return them to the system), right?  Or are these
chunks of autoload-data placed in the pure-space?
