Well, doing things like opening a config file is ... rather lame for
something like malloc(), IMO.  That should be reserved for a debugging

If the things that "we don't want to do" can be isolated and
conditionally compiled into a libdebugmalloc (or some other less
icky name :-), I would think that a better malloc would most certainly
be welcome.
