Hm, there can be a lot of objects with the same name. And many of them
freed at runtime which makes it not so easy to track objects by names..

I have an idea that seems simple but effective: wipe out trace
counters for addresses that are freed during GC. Yes, this needs a GC
support. Hopefully, it would make us a good sampling for objects in
older generations. Stack access can be filtered out without much pain.

Sorry for my interrupting :)
