    Run that by me again? So we're saying "if we just freed an
    object from this page then make this page be the *last* page
    which is eligible for new allocations"? Under the assumption
    that other objects in that same page are about to be freed
    up as well?

    Makes sense. It would be nice to get this confirmed in
    targetted testing ;)
