Thank you for looking into this!  I'd suggestion using the tag

There are two possible performance related issues of which I am

1) We have a smaller default hole size which expands with the core
   proportionally.  This should add a bit of time purely in gc, and
   can be circumvented by setting the hole size.

2) There was an array compilation problem that has since been cleared
   in the above mentioned tagged version.

Would be very helpful!

I'm hoping we can release by summer's end, but I don't think we should
until the overwhelming majority of Paul's ansi tests pass.

Take care,
