I don't mean to disregard what Horiguchi san and others have developed and discussed.
But I refactored again the v15 patch to reduce complexity of v15 patch
because it seems to me one of the reason for dropping feature for pruning by size stems from
code complexity.

Another thing is there's been discussed about over memory accounting overhead but
the overhead effect hasn't been measured in this thread. So I'd like to measure it.
