Description
NMT # loaded classes gets SystemDictionary::number_of_classes.
This accurately shows the number of current entries in the SD, which
is needed for walking through the table etc.

The end user just wanted to know the number of entries which
have a defining loader - still reported as #classes - just a smaller
number.
