yeah, I shortened it to be more of less "80 chars" friendly.

sure, will fix. yeah, I'm a native broken english speaker :-)

ok.

I'm still thinking how good it should be.

for automatic compaction we don't want to uselessly move objects between
pages and I tend to think that it's better to compact less, than to waste
more cpu cycless.


on the other hand, this policy will miss cases like:

-- free objects in class: 5 (free-objs class capacity)
-- page1: inuse 2
-- page2: inuse 2
-- page3: inuse 3
-- page4: inuse 2

so total "insuse" is greater than free-objs class capacity. but, it's
surely possible to compact this class. partial inuse summ <= free-objs class
capacity (a partial summ is a ->inuse summ of any two of class pages:
page1 + page2, page2 + page3, etc.).

otoh, these partial sums will badly affect performance. may be for automatic
compaction (the one that happens w/o user interaction) we can do zs_can_compact()
and for manual compaction (the one that has been triggered by a user) we can
old "full-scan".

anyway, zs_can_compact() looks like something that we can optimize
independently later.
