/* These are some dynamic memory allocation facilities.  They are essentially
   an extension to C, as they do allocations with a cognizance of C

   Before including this, you must define an __inline__ macro if your

   fails.

   Note that malloc() actually takes a size_t size argument, so the
   proper test would be whether the size can be represented by size_t,
   not unsigned int.  But there is no reliable indication available to
   us, like UINT_MAX, of what the limitations of size_t are.  We
   assume size_t is at least as expressive as unsigned int and that
   nobody really needs to allocate more than 4GB of memory.
