Remove MemoryAllocation()? #572

A number of classes have MemoryAllocation() methods that try to estimate the actual memory usage of an instance, taking things like padding by the allocator into account. However, it's unclear if this logic still works: it has neither been validated in a long time nor I believe consistently updated with code changes. It's also not portable to begin with due to assumptions about specifics of the allocator. I suggest we investigate to which degree people are still relying on the numbers this computes and consider removing it.

I've also been suspect of this functionality for a long time and I think it makes sense to remove it. I'd be surprised to discover if anyone is using it.
