I guess the library has a misleading name. The subtitle "Deterministic Memory Manager of Constant Complexity" is probably a better description of the library scope.

The reason for the name might be that the library was already up for review a long time ago, and got rejected the first time because of inadequate documentation. However there was considerable interest in the library:

This submission looks like a complete rewrite to me, so the scope is probably slightly changed now. However, I still can't find adequate documentation. So if I were the review manager for this library, I would probably work with Phil to come up with adequate documentation before scheduling a review.
