i just noticed this function.  if you examine the cliffs code, you will
find a similar function.  it is even added for exactly the same reasons:
namely that when talloc is used in marshalling / unmarshalling, the
memory-usage grows insanely large.

when i described to dr andrew tridgell that i was adding a talloc_realloc,
i was informed that this makes the purpose of talloc - trivial alloc -
non-trivial.  therefore, the function is unacceptable.

now, jeremy adds talloc_realloc.

this implies that the rejection of the addition of this function was not
for technical reasons.

dr andrew tridgell, as examples like this come up, i will point them out.
my respect for you will be restored when you apologise for the manner in
which you treated my expertise, work and abilities with such disdain.
