For the compiler use case .. ;-) Perhaps the compiler creates a lot of 
same sized blocks, while other (smaller) applications allocate many 
different sizes; say use a lot of different sizes classes.

Do you mean to change this in heap.inc or in the compiler startup?

256kB on 297MB isn't much; but if a program has typical memory use of 
e.g. 3MB it is significant ;-).
