Here is a benchmark. Based on my assumption that this patch may reduce allocation overheads due to minimizing padding+fragmentation, it allocates a lot of memory, and then waits 20s so you can check in the process explorer what the "Commit Size" of the process is.

For the current 3.3 tree, in 32-bit mode, on a 64-bit Windows 7 installation, I get 464,756K for the unpatched version, and 450,436K for the patched version.

This is a 3% saving, which seems good enough for me.
