1:59:56rationalcoder Q: Just caught up with the stream, but I have had a question for a while: When you come up with a reusable data structure and want to share it between projects / other people, how do you deal with custom allocation? I have been writing some hybrid data structures, and I want to add custom allocation, but adding a template parameter seems like a bad solution to the problem
