- PROGN and TAGBODY now detect unreachable code, eliminating it.

- I have activated the generational and incremental garbage collector
in the Boehm-Weiser library.

- Loading binary files no longe results in a full garbage collection
cycle being started.

This buys us both time and memory. The usual comparison of test suite run times:

real time : 401.964 secs
run time  : 206.000 secs
gc count  : 142 times
consed    : 266020492 bytes

to be compared with, before

real time : 476.979 secs
run time  : 268.773 secs
gc count  : 590 times
consed    : 3833384924 bytes
