Is there a description out there about what the memory backing of a buffered channel looks like? I.e., does
c := make(chan int, 10000)
allocate something similar to a int up front, or is there a more append-like behavior that allocates slices on demand? If the latter, can the buffer "shrink" again when not in use?
I ask this to decide between manually handling what might be a temporarily large buffer of objects (larger than ints), or let this just be handled by the channel itself.
Of course I can and should benchmark, but some background info would be nice anyway. :)
