    Description

      VectorSet is the only concrete implementation of the abstract base class Set in the libadt folder. This is a utility used mainly by compiler code, although there are some uses in GC code.

      - Extravagant use of operator overloading (<<= adds items to the set, >>= removes them)
      - Plenty of unused methods
      - Since VectorSet is the only implementation in the code base, Set is unnecessary
      - Various method names in conflict with HotSpot standard

      Cleaning up and removing dead code gets rid of around ~700 lines of code.
