Well if you read the title of the thread, my initial goal was to clean
up this mess with a virtual table-based heap allocator so any client
could implement their own implementations for better safety or better
low latency algorithms.

But it turns out people don't understand the importance, try to
intimidate (BTW sometimes I intentionally say stupid things to trigger
the "bullies", this way I sort them out easily) or just don't want to
have to deal with Microsoft (funny de-facto influence here).

Because this is not my own code but I did waste 1 month recompiling
OpenCV over and over trying to pinpoint the problem under Windows.

But that basically gives even more weight to the importance of C++ Superset.
