I imagine that's a losing battle as then you start to see all sorts of
fragmentation issues, I bet.  I'm just guessing here; I'm likely wrong
and I'm okay with that--I haven't reviewed any of their code, and I'm
sure the behavior will be dependent on the underlying OS's memory
management implememtation, as well.
