Oh yes :-) But allocation is N time for a block size N, and memory
overhead is one pointer per block. I implemented it for cons cells, it was
beautiful, but one pointer per cons is a lot. However, it was hard real

sub AUTOLOAD { ($s=$AUTOLOAD)=~s/.*:://; eval qq{ *$AUTOLOAD=$s
?sub {$s*&{$s-1}} :sub {1}; }; goto &$AUTOLOAD; } print &{'4'};
