The simple context doesn't seem like a big problem even if we change
things as Tomas suggests:

"IMNSHO these are the issues we really should fix - by lowering the
initial element count (64->4) and using a single memory context."

In the simple context, there's only one context regardless, so the only
cost I see is from reducing the initial allocation from 64 to some lower
number. But if we're doubling each time, it won't take long to get
there; and because it's the simple context, we only need to do it once.
