Well, that depends on where you want to draw the "core line".
How much help are we willing to give to the XS people?

For example, weak references are in the core, even though core itself
doesn't use them.

Maybe instead of directly diddling with the HV definition and code
we could solve this one by supplying the right hooks for XS writers
to hang on to?
