I think the TMP_ALLOC is more trouble than it's worth.

The alternative is, in every case, have a modest fixed-size local array;
use that, or `malloc' if needed, later `free' if needed.

Advantages are:

a) does not crash

b) may help optimizer

c) stack use is quite modest in all cases

d) one less non-portable thing

I volunteer to do this work, if people think that it's a good idea.
