GYP and WAF need to live in parallel for some time.
Some people were reporting waf erroring with thread.error: can't start new thread this seems to fix that problem.

Users will need to "make distclean" to recompile from scratch since I've moved a lot of the core build tools around.
This is sloppy: after each ObjectWrap allocation the user needs to call ObjectWrap::InformV8ofAllocation(). In addition each class deriving from ObjectWrap needs to implement the virtual method size() which should return the size of the derived class. If I was better at C++ I could possibly make this less ugly. For now this is how it is. Memory usage looks much better after this commit.
