tried setting
the 'block' variable to null at the end of Emit() and this
alone reduced
the peak memory used by mcs during corlib compilation by
about 10%
and it also increased its speed somewhat (due to faster
The attached patch implements this idea.

Also, there was some talk about emitting the list of
