  What did you think of the idea to have all TMP_ALLOC calls check the
  size they're asked for and use malloc above a threshold?
I don't like that idea.

In many places, one knows a TMP_ALLOC invocation is for a small amount
of memory.

We might want to have a TMP_STACK_OR_HEAP_ALLOC for what you suggest.
