I think this is what memcache does. This would be important as the for
lesser number of entries people might not use offheap. They would go
for it to store millions of entries without having to worry about GC,
and that's where our Memory Manager implementation would matter a lot.

We can also take idea from the HFile, the way HBase stores key-value
pairs there. The important distinction would be give our
implementation a Map view, as we won't be using scans to retrieve
data, and may never store keys in lexicographical order.
