Response to: What about preallocated memory?

Significantly cheaper, yes, but still expensive from some perspectives. A lot of my recent coding has been done with OpenGL, and I anticipate a point in the future where allocations will be the major bottleneck. It may be farther off than I think, of course, and I'll wait till then to optimize... but it's still a fun thing to know how to do!
