I'd honestly expected it to use malloc/free like Array(T).

Allocators will take care of this.

Right, I'm just saying that the inefficiency of insertions (which is one of the
most common operations next to removal) in DList almost negates any performance
gained by using it instead of a plain Array(T) for some use cases (for me,
instruction streams in a JIT compiler). For large workloads, it'll induce a lot
of GC cycles, scanning, and freeing, which is way worse for throughput than the
slightly less efficient insertion and removal algorithms on an Array(T) which
at least use malloc/free.

I know allocators will solve this, but I think that a malloc/free approach in
the meantime would be reasonable enough (if doable).
