> Here’s a rough task list:
> (1) Define a canonical GTK platform we’ll use for performance measurement.
> (2) Measure FastMalloc on/off on that platform.
> Assuming FastMalloc is a significant improvement:
> (1b) or specifically annotate each object at the API library with a per-class operator new / operator delete.
> (2) Find a fast secure random number API on the canonical GTK platform.
> (3) Find a fast thread-specific data API on the canonical GTK platform.
(4) Find a fast API for aligned virtual memory allocation.
(5) Find a fast API for committing / decommitting physical memory without releasing virtual memory pages.
