There is one last bit that we discussed on irc that did not make it to
the mailing lists.  

glib today features a very powerful slab allocator, and this slab
allocator does have a performance gain in things like the mcs bootstrap

I for one do not want to see Mono become slower by making eglib the only
option.   At least someone needs to do run the various benchmarks on
this switch, it should not be hard to do, just build Mono with eglib on
x86 and run the usual suspects.
