   Well, the glib memory caching speeds dynamic data structures up by a large
   factor. If that interferes with ccmalloc, well, such is life. 

Ionutz has a really good point here -- finding memory leaks is hard
enough without having libraries that hide them.  Hmmm...  I haven't
looked at glib's implementation, but if it has a memory
allocation/deallocation package built into it (which I'd sort of
expect), it ought to be reasonably straightforward to do something
like either compile this with its current implementation or as a
wrapper around malloc/free...
