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 collection. Someone must have thought of it already, after all. You're the 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.
