Hmm, there are also other allocation patches floating around, I wonder
if it makes sense to consider them as a group.  Here are the CCAN

1) TALLOC_EXTERNAL: an alternate allocator flag, and any children of a
   TALLOC_EXTERNAL are allocated using the alternate allocator hook.
2) talloc_set_allocator() which replaces malloc/free/realloc for all
   talloc allocations.

The former I use for libantithread, the latter for failtest.  But I
think the former could be used to implement static pools.
