So, not much love (or otherwise) on this?

Not even a complaint about putting up the patch in an unfavoured form?

I'd expected to be berated for something by now!

Deafening silence continues........

 Chris,

I haven't replied because I don't see much need for this. The only situation I have seen where something like this might be useful is the Postgresql pool allocator where once a transaction is complete all allocations related to it are force-freed.

I'm not keen on the change, but I'm not necessarily fighting it.

Best regards,
Frank
