Shrinkage

So we're studying heap dumps for our Java app to try to determine why our models are taking up as much space as they are. After staring down some of the models, I dropped in a bit of new code.

The model that I was working with -- one of the smaller ones, admittedly! -- shrank by almost 10% in its memory footprint. Larger models probably won't shrink quite as much, but it was a gratifying result.

Now to see if I can use this trick in some other places. :)
