  a couple tips are in order.  first, newspace is effectively twice as
  large as the active memory, so make sure to keep it small.  you can
  adjust the GC parameters to this end, and also call SYS:RESIZE-AREAS.
  second, the amount of newspace can grow fast when loading, so investigate
  the function EXCL::LOAD-APPLICATION, which tenures objects much faster
  than the normal behavior.
