Forgot to post numbers for this.  Peak memory was at 920 MB before
the five patches, and 884 MB after.  (These exact numbers won't quite
reproduce in ToT since I still haven't finished cleaning up and
committing the MCSymbol and emitLabelDiff() work I hacked on top of,
but the 36 MB drop should hold.)
