No, MM is "no longer pertinent" (got to love CVS's terminology).  =-)

Anyway, --enable-sms refers to our experimental Stackable Memory 
System.  It's kind of dead now because it couldn't perform as 
well as the current pool code.  

Sander and Brian's recent patches attempt to add thread-local 
freelists to our pool code - which is the major disadvantage with 
the current pool code that SMS was attempting to address.  We
probably need to sift through these patches to determine which
alternative we prefer.  -- justin
