The compiler on my machine emits a function call for dynamic_cast to void*,
plus whatever that function does, which seems a lot of overhead compared to
the two masks and two memory references than an implemention based on size-
segregated allocation would require.
Perhaps the compilers you have tested do a better job?

Well, it isn't, as was known nearly a century ago, but it's close enough.
