it may be worth mentioning that there are other projects/approaches like
IBM's PackedObjects or Gil Tene's ObjectLayout which solve at least a part

I compared them in a talk that I was giving at FOSDEM (did we actually met

Incidentally I'll also give this talk tomorrow at JEE Conf in Kiev so if
you should be around you're very welcome;)
