Getting this on our radar for alpha release in less than two weeks.

Actually, this is currently an alpha-only feature. Therefore, this should be lesser prio.

We don't want to update jemalloc4. Actually, we'll remove it as Mozilla won't ship it and the tiny bit of defense we currently use is gone upstream.

For esr52 cycle it is possible to use jemalloc4, updated to 4.5 at least or later, or you are going to use better approaches?

It's not sure yet what we are going to use. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1052573 sounds interesting, though.

Have they decided to improve mozjemalloc with it (and abandon jemalloc4), but do nothing for mingw?
