Jumping into this...

I've finally had a chance to review Volker's changes
and they do simplfy things a lot for me. I can
understand this code, which does help.

I'd like to propose that they get added into 3.3,
and we can work on the multi-allocator enhancements
and other things we'll need for the Dec release.

That way we can get more testing and experience
with the new code.
