I somewhat prefer the friend declaration:
_hrm._allocated_heapregions_length is somewhat of a hack and is
preferably not available from outside, because potentially people start
using it for iteration over the heap again then ;)

What could be done to hide this is to create a factory method for the
HeapRegionClaimer in HeapRegionManager, or pass the HeapRegionClaimer
instance to a HeapRegionManager instance for initialization.
