I'm not sure if using rb_class_name in object.c is enough to prevent
breaking all existing code.  Until this is sufficiently reviewed,
I have no plans to commit this patch at the moment.

valgrind 3.9.0 on x86-64 reports a minor reduction in memory usage
when loading only RubyGems and RDoc by running: ruby -rrdoc -eexit

before: HEAP SUMMARY:
    in use at exit: 2,913,448 bytes in 27,394 blocks
  total heap usage: 48,362 allocs, 20,968 frees, 9,034,621 bytes alloc

after: HEAP SUMMARY:
    in use at exit: 2,880,056 bytes in 26,712 blocks
  total heap usage: 47,791 allocs, 21,079 frees, 9,046,507 bytes alloc
