For non-POD types locality of reference has quite significant effect on
results of performance tests. Access to values through pointers is more
costly against POD values. Non-POD types hardly can be useful for reliable
performance measurements even for containers with small number of elements.
The size of a single element std::pair<Box,ptr> is another factor that
should have an effect on performance.
