You use the tern 'most' means you still need to consider the size over
PAGE_SIZE. If in current application, PAGE_SIZE is enough for display, I
think you still should remove this reallocation in the first patch
because you need not to reallocation. Once the display need more than
PAGE_SIZE, you send the another patch that support client to set the
initial size. I think we should make the first patch as simple as
possible, and you could add another patch to improve it.
