Wouldn't such a specialized allocator help the D runtime to have a lower footprint and make it possible to optimize allocations patterns?

I share link coz I saw a few videos by Andrey and Walter where they talks about memory allocations
and there is talk about decoupling from C-runtime
and "the core library is less than 3500 LOC, much smaller than the core of other industrial strength allocators like tcmalloc(~20k LOC) and jemalloc(~25k LOC)." from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/research/uploads/prod/2019/06/mimalloc-tr-v1.pdf
so probably such implemetnation can be useful: less code = easy support
