Speeds up =../2, call/n, predicate_property (
also when predicate indicator based (sic!)),
etc.. in Prolog.

But requires one more field in an atom, and
to avoid cache trashing when the same arity
is overloaded, I don't make atoms unique.

Could be also helpful for Erlang apply, or
maybe you already usa a cache there in some
instruction.
