just curious (and i do not understand whether the "1, 5 ..." are object
sizes in bytes or what), would it make sense to add some instrumentation
code (a small array of counters i presume) to track the actual number
of requests for exact object sizes, and perhaps at runtime create buckets
trying to reduce waste ?
Following your reasoning there seems to be still a big gap between
some of the numbers you quote in the sequence.
