hey check this page out
<http://soldc.sun.com/articles/multiproc/multiproc.html>

it tells me two things:

- on linux with ptmalloc in glibc, the stock performance should be almost
as good as with hoard

- on solaris there is a stock "mtmalloc" library which is almost as good
as ptmalloc and hoard, no licensing issue

this eliminates the worry of a hoard recommendation doesn't it?

ok ok there's other beasts such as AIX and IRIX which run on big boxes.
but, um, oh my biases are showing again aren't they?
