table: conserve memory when extending IntList in LongBinner (joins)
util: add explicit primitiveList.nextCapacity method for better performance configurability; also make default implementation more conservative
table: multiply by 4 the default bin size scale factor for match engines.
This variable is a tuning factor which affects performance but not results.
The original value was picked by me when I first wrote these classes
simply on the grounds that it looked sensible. Recent tests suggests
that the new values typically deliver much better performance.
But it's possible that they could do worse (and possibly should be
adjusted back) in the light of future experience with different data sets.
table: add a couple of assertions
table: findInternalMatches now uses LongBinner not ObjectBinner (more efficient)
table: improve efficiency of LongBinner implementation
topcat: don't do profiling in match logging (takes time)
topcat: fix threading bug which caused some match logging messages to get lost
