Re: Feedback on __mt_alloc?

That looks good to me, and seems to test well on linux and BSD.

Certainly, it is of interest! I'd like it to be distributed with
libstdc++. It was my hope that somebody else would take care of doing
the integration work, however.

If you've already got the copyright assignment, etc, then it can be
integrated straight away. If not, please see:

My suggestion for integrating this would be:

1) move all non-required allocators and types out of
include/bits/stl_alloc.h and into separate files in ext/*_alloc.h.

2) add your allocator there

3) fixup the documentation.
