In a different but related application, I considered the underlying
allocator (all Windows here), VirtualAlloc
Requesting memory from the OS (bar my understanding) results in at least
one memory page (4096 Kb) to be allocated (or a multiple of that). Not
wanting to let any memory go to waste (it's already allocated anyway), I
defined a template parameter that stipulates the *minimum* number of
objects to be allocated in one segment. One can then calculate the number
of pages required to make up that segment and following that, the number of
objects that are actually being reserved in that segment. All this can
obviously be static constexpr C++14 member functions.

Please comment (anyone), as I might be totally deluded (as I'm still not
really sure on this) and don't mind being put straight (preferably).
