digitalmars.D.learn - Do I understand std.experimental.allocator composition correctly?

The documentation for std.experimental.allocator is a little dense and I wanted to make sure I am understanding composition correctly. Suppose I have the following, taken more-or-less direct from the docs: auto batchAllocator = AllocatorList!( (size_t n) => Region!Mallocator(max(n, 1024*1024)) )(); https://dlang.org/phobos/std_experimental_allocator_building_blocks_region.html#.Region Is my understanding correct that Mallocator, the ParentAllocator in Region's construction will allocate a block of at least 1 MiB when a request comes in, but calls to batchAllocator.make!(T) will allocate only enough (rounded up to some ideal like a power of 2) to store T -- until it runs out, then the AllocatorList will allocate another block of 1 MiB, and so on? Essentially, I need to allocate memory for objects in an inner loop, and I thought a better strategy would be to make big block alloc(s) as a pool and then hand out internal pointers into the pool. I previously did this will malloc() and std.conv.emplace, but this looks like a better solution, if my understanding is correct. Thank you!
