Custom Memory Allocation and reaps
This is maybe of interest of the persons working (or willing to 
work) on custom allocators for Phobos:

"Reconsidering Custom Memory Allocation" (2002) by Emery D. 
Berger, Benjamin G. Zorn, Kathryn S.McKinley:

http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/summary?doi=10.1.1.7.6505

They show the "reap" data structure that is a crossover between a 
localized heap and a region, and they see good results.

It's easy to find on the web but I bet a lot of folks never seen it.

Thanks for the slides. BTW is there any video of the presentation?

Interestingly, the slides mention the paper[1] in a few places.
