It depends on what you mean "achieved". Let me state some 
- Why do you want that memory allocator ?
- What this allocator should be able to achieve ?
- Why the libc one is not appropriate for the job ?
- Why no other allocator is appropriate for the job ?
- Can we create and maintain this allocator ?

These questions are presented humbly. And they are important.
The fact that I did not set and answer such questions firstly _to 
for the first part of the project, meant that I did the project 
yet all this work was just thrown away as far as the D community 
is concerned.
