More complete patch (version 2):

* Document PYTHONMALLOC environment variable
* Add PYTHONMALLOC=debug to install debug hooks without forcing a specific memory allocator (keep the default memory allocator)
* Fix sys._debugmallocstats() for PYTHONMALLOC=malloc: don't display pymalloc stats
* _testcapi.pymem_api_misuse(): more realistic code, use PyMem_Mallloc() + PyMem_RawFree(). This code works in release mode (since PyMem and PyMem_Raw use the same allocator: malloc/free), but fail with a fatal error with debug hooks (API misused).
