Yes but this is a worse-case scenario because the assignment of a
pointer from the data segment that is the last one pointing to an object
on the heap will go thru more subroutines. If the pointer was already
on the heap then it'll be faster. What really matters is the constant

But you're right on the docs I'll correct them.

My point is to optimize ordered_malloc() and is_from() and I was
wondering if there is any hope that can happen?
