operator delete(void *ptr, size_t size)


Hello all,

What is an example of a circumstance where it would be useful to overload
the form of operator delete with the second parameter (of type size_t)?
i.e.:

void operator delete(void *ptr, size_t size);

Thanks,
Dave

If you were keeping lists of blocks ordered by size. This
could speed up finding the block to be deleted.
