Yeah, the largest possible allocation in single-level is (though, in the
real world, this may not actually be possible) 16776704, which is less
than 16mb -- which is 512 bytes less than 16mb.

The largest in Teraspace is 2147483424, which is 224 bytes less than 2gb.

Do people really use 2gb in a single allocation?
