Does Boost have a memory debugging and measuring allocator? Something
like Howard describes in

>What will it do for you?
> * It will detect whole program memory leaks.
> * It will detect "delete on new[]" or "delete[] on new" mismatch.
> * It will detect double deletes and non-heap based pointer deletes.
> * You can query it for how much memory is used at any point.
> * Because of the previous point, you can bracket a function call
> with usage queries to find out "memory leaked" for that call.
> * You can query a new-based pointer for how much memory it points to.
> * Performance is quite respectible for a memory debugger (but it is
> not intended for release code).
