Small Progress on the Mullocator

Did something that I always wished other libraries would do, that is to expose the locks. This way you can avoid the locking hell, when doing

for( i = 0; i < 10000; i++) 
   malloc( 8);

Looks pretty much finished now. An open question is, what to do with it. GPL it, LGPL it, sell it, patent it ? I'd ideally like to test it some more. Maybe I'll port it to Linux and replace the standard malloc implementation with and see what happens.

This conflicts with my tendency to procrastinate and to then take on something totally different and forget the old crap. :)
