It does seem like we've effectively given up pure space when we
switched to pdumper. We still fill it and spend a lot of time making
sure not to waste any, but it's then simply copied to the dump along
with the rest of the dumped image. It's still kept around in the final
executable, so we're wasting quite a bit of disk space on it...

Most importantly, I think, the CHECK_IMPURE macro now does nothing
(except waste a few cycles), and we can freely setcar what should be
purecopied conses.

(One thing we might do is introduce immutable conses, and use them for
`read', pure space, and in a few other places).
