If you're in a benchmarking and investigative mood, two bookmarks I
saved "to look at one day" are:

The first touts general performance, whilst the second is more of a
debugging malloc.  Might be worth checking out (especially the first).

Another idea that came to mind was either printing out some of the
memory-related getrusage() figures or simply the output of {t,}csh's
"time" command which contains a summary of the same.
