Memory Allcator - Shrink to fit
Google/translate0Thank You!0Good Post!0Bad Post! link
I just had the idea of a memory allocator that adds `mshrink(pointer*, reallyNeededSize)` to the heap allocation scheme.

This reduces the memory allocated for the last object to the real needed size.
This might reduce memory footprint for e.g. ArrayList() in Java

Is this idea any good?
