Ah, yes, agreed.

  Now, that's a very good point. This wasn't raised that many time but
  i can understand how it could be useful to some users, agreed !
The main problem is to realize what is going on :) The bug-report I
received was like "We are running out of memory when debug messages are
disabled!" (because when enabled, vsyslog triggered compacting the
heap). So, to spread the word I just got the idea, that maybe a comment
in the example sources would also be a good thing? Then again, those
examples immediately end the process after freeing, so there is not much
of a difference.

I am adding it to SVN, it should show up on the web site soon,
thanks a lot for the suggestion and the wording,
I am glad that you think it is useful,

All the best,
