I just realized that the space profiling is definitely going to have a real
problem with overflowing the bins. If I have a hot loop allocating lots of
junk, it isn't hard for one location to be responsible for more than 2^32
bytes of allocation. This seems like another argument for going for the
procedure call, and having the linked list use 64 bits worth of counter (plus
32 bits for the link). This way you are safe from wrapping.
