 I'm neutral about it.  There are many MRI specific features and

----------------------------------------
ObjectSpace.dump() expose internal information in JSON.
How about to expose buffer addresses for String and Array?

With this hack, we can know the real memory address of them and cooperate with other native tools.

BTW, ObjectSpace.dump() should support T_SYMBOL.
