That would be another Project. :-( May be worth it, may be not. I'd
hate to foist pymalloc on the community in 2.2.2 only to find out that
it breaks in 1% of situations.
It does suggest that we should try to strive for a malloc API that
doesn't require changes to extensions written (according to the docs)
