Ungar's original paper proposing a fixed-location nursery for
generational GCs made exactly this point: For best performance
the size of the nursery should be somewhere around the size of

 I don't have the reference at hand at the moment, but could dig
it out of my hard-copy file of GC papers when I get back home
