True globals live in the executable itself ini the usual way, as far
as I know.  Other malloc data needs to be characterized to the dumper
in a way similar to the way that Lisp data is characterized to the GC.
Beyond that, I don't know; I just know that we do, successfully.

If somebody wants to follow up, Olivier Galibert knows how.
