FYI, for small blocks (<512 bytes) it's only 4. And now I look at 
heap.inc again, I think that even alignment for small blocks could be 
upgraded to 4 byte granularity instead of 16 bytes. This would have a 
positive impact on memory usage (less slack), while retaining equal speed.

Anyone interested in smaller granularity there ? It would increase the 
number of freelists by a factor 4, but that's globally, once-allocated
