Is there some quantitive analysis on the effects of the number of keywords on GC pauses?

Not anything I’ve done recently. I think in most “normal” uses this is not a particularly important contributor to gc

wondering if it there's a negative impact threshold when using keyword value types in Datomic

I'll also try to profile GC pauses with different collectors, stack sizes and VMs, see if anything interesting turns up
