They don't bother to pack data on disk or in mem, and their 
representations of data structures and the like are more bloated than 
those which MOO has (actually, its more probable that its bloated simply 
because its emulating MOO).

I'm not sure if MOO does packing either, although I know cold packs data 
on disk.
