memory handling in libwbclient?

Hi, Jerry!

Looking at libwbclient a bit more closely, one thing comes
to mind: wbcGetpwnam() returns something that needs to be
freed by wbcFreeMemory() whereas wbcLookupRids() and
wbcLookupSid return something that needs to be explicitly
with free(). Is that difference intended or just
accidential? And, would you consider it worthwile to change 
the functions that return malloc'ed memory to functions that
return the hidden talloc structures?
