I'm going to store bytecodes instead of procedures.  Procedures,
which are bytecodes + environments in my vm, can also be stored
somehow.  I'm going to check all objects stored at once in order
to avoid duplicate store and circulation.  They are reconstructed
as they were at loading time.

But, right, some objects, like primitive procedures, cannot be
easily stored.  We should raise an error in this case.
