Yeah! That's what I'm talking about. I actually embed very much C++
in microcontrollers down to 1kB of RAM and no heap because I exclude
it in my self-written linker files.

Over the years I wrote all kinds of high-performance allocation stuff:
constructor w/ reinterpret_cast memory mapped to pools, circular allocators,
static allocators with pools. It's fast if you want it to be.

But Boost.Pool, I have not figured out yet.

I would like to say: There really are some of us fitting junk into 64 bytes,
or 1024, or whatever.

Best regards, Chris.
