I don't remember anything about rxx::allocator, i guess its just the default
for C++.

About monster buckets: Normally a bucket has a size of 64kb, but when an
item is allocated that is larger than that, a "monster bucket" is allocated,
which spans the space of multiple buckets.

Ok, so it's expected - thanks for clarifiying that. Can you also answer my
other questions, then I'll add some ApiDox to document that for the future.

Optimization is always good but you are right in the sense that it works
well already as I said.
