For release mode, NDEBUG must be defined. However, a superficial glance at the sources doesn't reveal any debugging instrumentation depending on NDEBUG. Andrew, is there any?

Another question for Andrew: Why was the relaxed heap replaced with a 4-ary heap? In my experience, a normal array based binary heap is a nightmare for the cache, and I wonder whether the 4-ary heap will be much better in this respect. However, I don't know whether the cache behavior of a relaxed heap is much better.
