If you allocate a container for example:
list<int> l(100);

The information of each node in the list will be placed consecutively in the
system memory map. Consecutive lookups to that table could be accelerated
because the information of those allocated block are following each other.

IMO Boost would be really powerful having those little garbage collections
techniques: swapped memory, cyclic_ptr and accelerated container allocation
/ deallocation. Responses are always appreciated of course. I won't bite.
