> Should PyMem_SetAllocator() and PyObject_SetArenaAllocator() be called before Py_Initialize(), or they can be called after it?

I'm quite sure that calling PyMem_SetAllocator() or PyObject_SetArenaAllocator() after Py_Initialize() will quickly crash.

> If PyMem_Malloc() and PyObject_Malloc() are not needed for pre-initialization, should we support calling them before Py_Initialize()?

We don't have to support them.

Ok, I remove them from the pre-init documentation.
