I meant dangerous if not classified undefined when you delete the class
indirectly (wrote too fast). Now I just realized destroy() should be used:

        a2.destroy( this );
        a2.deallocate( this, 1 );

Interesting but unfortunate we cannot mix pools within allocators because it
makes allocators even less flexible (useful).

Secondly the pointer argument of deallocate() and destroy() should be passed
in as references because:
- you have better control
- the allocator knows what need to be done according to the pointer type

And shouldn't necessarily be the same as the one returned by allocate().
