What's the current state of D's GC. Will std.allocator improve
I don't understand the point of std.allocator.
AFAIK the current GC has very limited compiler support. A smart
compiler could move allocations to the stack by doing smart
static analysis, cluster pointers that should be traced to the
same cache lines etc.
Moving to library allocation just makes it even harder to write a
smart compiler, for very little gain IMO (i.e. custom allocators
will always be better).
