I do not understand this comment. operator delete is required,
freestanding or not. So, I do not understand the bits saying it may
make sense not to define "operator delete". Could you clarify?
If you don't have "free" on your system, you probably do not want
"delete" either, depsite the fact that C++ requires "delete" and C does
not require "free".
Certainly, if you don't have "free" there's no obvious portable
implementation of "delete".
