tinySelf speed

I haven't finished debugging tinySelf yet, so I can only
execute simple expressions with it (like adding a few
points or calculating a factorial).

The results I have obtained so far indicate that tinySelf
is about 600 to 2000 times slower than Self. This is
actually much better than I expected, because this
implementation is really horrible and creates new mirrors
all the time. Since Squeak runs on top of itself about
620 times slower and is a pretty clean interpreter, I
thought my results would be worse.
