There are uses of an object identity stored in the object: for instance
when I wanted to collect statistics on the number of times each object
is moved by the generational-mostly-copying collector of CMM, I had to
add an identity field.
This was fairly easy since I only had to add a field to class CmmObject
from which all collected objects are derived.
