Brett is right. Macroing the memory allocator is a better choice than
forcing indirection on all platforms. We did this on Python for S60,
using the macros PyCore_{MALLOC,REALLOC,FREE}_FUNC for interpreter's
allocations, and then redirected those to a mechanism that allows to set
the allocator at runtime. 

Sorry we don't have a clean patch at present for this change only, but
in case anyone's interested the full source is at
