Yes, scan time will be increased by the bumber of items required to 
be marked as reachable.
I'm just following the ref_counted layout, not adding new classes.
Actually, I'd like to remove some classes from the ref_counted
tree, in particular bitmap_info and character_def (and descendant).

After all, a definition is always in memory anyway (in the CharacterDictionary)
so it should be managed by the CharacterDictionary. The only exception is
for dynamically created sprites (IIRC) which gets a definition created at 
and the drawable for drawing API, which is again a definition breaking the
documentation for a character_def (an "immutable" definition of a character 
We used a shape_character_def to avoid changing the interfaces to the backend 
but I've always noted we had a problem there, suggesting we'd always render 
instead of *definitions*.
