1. garbage collector
2. Saves on space overhead for dynamic allocation (size labels, internal
3. Should be faster than almost any variable-size allocator

I will have a closer look at your work before Monday. On first inspection,
it is very impressive. I'm a little curious about the
function-object-constructor approach. While perfectly general, it seems a
lot less convenient than the family-of-template-functions strategy. Maybe it
would be best if both were available.


I'm very glad to see that so much activity on the subject of pool allocators
has gone on in my absence (sorry, my life just got suddenly crazier than
usual for a while)!
