digitalmars.D.announce - Typed D allocator based on jemalloc

Nothing huge here. The package[0] provides the bindings, 
JEMallocator (like Mallocator) and JEAlignedAllocator (like 
AlignedAllocator). All of them use jeallocator[1], which is 
actually the default implementation of malloc in the FreeBSD 
system.

In a future update I may add another D alloc which would be 
specific to each thread. Another allocator, tcmallocd[2] already 
does this.

Neat. Stupid question, probably, but I don't really know much about jemalloc: Does using the binding yield me significant benefits over just using building blocks the way it's shown under "Sample Assembly" here[1]? [1] https://dlang.org/phobos/std_experimental_allocator_building_blocks.html
