[equinox-dev] code cleanup/performance

M8 is fast approaching.  The goal for the remaning time should be functional completeness on as many fronts as possible.  We need to wrap things up, pin them down or decide not to do them.  

In the week following M8, I propose that we do a systematic scrubbing and sanity checking of all the code from startup.jar up to runtime.compatibility.  This includes things like
- performance
- data structures
- removing all deprecated, dead, code and fields
- scanning all TODOs and doing them
- ensure logging is correct/adequate
- etc etc.

Doing this early in M9 allows us to discover any major issues as well as setting the stage for decreasing code changes as we approach M9.
