To reiterate my position.  I committed this on an experimental basis,
and I originally planned to get some other people to run some tests
and review the code accordingly.  I never, ever, *ever* wanted this
code *as it is now* in a release, or enabled by default.  I'm
certainly open to the idea of trashing my code, which again, was
*experimental*, and playing with plugging in jcmalloc or whatever.

This isn't a problem anyway has had time to tackle, and I need to for
bmesh.  I'm certainly not going add anything that's actually enabled
after much testing and developer discussion, this was more of an
effort to get the dialoge started.
