If you have a strict loop then you might want to do
something like

for (i=0; i<1000; i++) {
	TALLOC_CTX *frame = talloc_stackframe();

The point of the talloc stack is that in the general
non-looping case the code is not cluttered at all and it
correctly cleans up, and if you find peaks it is very easy
to get rid of them.
