Thanks! Glad to hear that.
It's quite hard to write a good docs, I'd appreciate help. Feel free to
provide PRs to adjust the docs

Yes, it allocates on the heap if the object does not fit. It's documented
here, somewhere between the lines

Good idea. Please fill a feature request

No. For what were you planning to rely on that?
