I wrote this as an alternative to liballoc for 2 reasons:
- liballoc is unstable and feature-gated
- liballoc includes abortive containers, and defines the inherent impl for
[T](a lang item) in terms of them
I called it “loca” for reasons which should be obvious to anyone who knows Rust and Spanish and has tried to use the new crashy liballoc in a signifcant capacity.
It has a feature “stable-rust” which, ah, lets one build it on stable rust. In this case it also uses
Unique from the ptr crate rather than libcore as the latter is feature-gated. (This is the reason it is a cargo feature rather than automatic — it actually modifies the interface.)
Cheers, have fun with allocators on stable!
