MS has released its mimalloc [1] under BSD license as a drop-in 
replacement for malloc. It is said to have excellent performance. It's 
also cross-platform. Can it be useful for LibreOffice (on supported 
platforms)? What is required to actually make LibreOffice use it, and 
how to test possible performance effect?
