I think even with 64 bit one should always try not to waste address space.
Wow, good thing you're here to remind us of these little details, I would
never have thought of that! What on earth will we do now?
Oh wait, right in the LMDB design paper, there's a discussion of garbage

worst kind of fool, one who believes he knows more than he actually does, in a
world where it's trivially easy to acquire the actual facts.
