[Gc] A technical question (and maybe a proposal)

I have a question regarding the internals of the gc:

Are blocks of the same size allocated from the same page? if not, then 
that's my proposal. Allocating same-sized chunks from the same page 
would make locating block headers very fast: all that it takes is to 
divide the page offset by the block size to find the block start.
