[Oberon] garbage collector

You have two options:

1. disable and enable the GC by hand (this could kill the system, if you use
a lot of memory)
2. allocate a memory block (with SYSTEM.NEW) and do whatever you want with
its contents

You should only use untraced pointers in this block. Using normal pointers
could (and probably will) crash the GC.
