Na, the interesting ones are always one-liners <wink>.

pymalloc was an experimental use-at-your-own-risk thing in 2.2 and before,
and Neil and I have both spent major time now making it fully usable for
2.3.  IOW, backpatching pymalloc improvements is over my limit for what "a
bugfix" means; 2.3's pymalloc is more of a new feature.
