[webkit-dev] Arena is crufty?

I would be happy to not add another Arena client, but the primary
reason I need an arena is not just for performance but to avoid having
to keep track of all of the objects I need to delete.

Is there any consensus yet on how to proceed with
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=45059 ? I'm concerned about
taking on large-scale restructuring with potential performance impact
as a prerequisite for my landing any initial code. I could revert my
PODArena class to use its own memory allocation rather than that in
