           Summary: Use jemalloc in dmd
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86
                OS: Mac OS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1

There are a number of options, ranging from specifying jemalloc in the linking
command line of the makefile on an opt-in basis, to distributing jemalloc's
source itself.

jemalloc improves dmd's run time by 15%. It's licensed via a BSD 4-clause
license which specifically eliminates the dreaded binary attribution clause.
