I remembered to have talked with him about that in Berlin.

Its just the same I do in our company, some simple allocator which bundles the 
small allocations into big banks.

(like pool allocation or zone allocation)

The only difference between my company allocator and rxx is, rxx never calls 
destructors on free.

I think it is a good thing to have, given you allocate a real large number of 
small objects which need to be freed together anyway, not sure what "no 
reclaim..." means, I thought all memory would be freed after parsing again.
