this simple example was meant to illustrate the core bottleneck in a larger
scanner/parser that i'm writing.

a version of my scanner/parser that uses a pre-allocated buffer pool
performs similarly on .NET and mono. ...but it'd be nice to remove the
buffer pool.

are there plans to improve memory allocation speed in a future GC? does
SGen-GC improve on this?
