I don't know if that's really worth the effort. The API would become
quite ugly, and the implementation inside quite uglier as it would have
to allocate and then reallocate using the user's malloc. That's only for
some windows systems, and I believe it is reasonable to expect _them_ to
properly know and use the provided deallocation function.
