An allocator parameter is not the only way to parameterize, here, nor it is
necessarily the most appropriate one. If I wanted to manage how
function/signals allocate their memory, I wouldn't want to do it on a
per-object basis - which, without the typedef templates, is pretty much the
only level the allocator template parameter would allow me to manage it on.
At least for these two libraries, a per-project parameterization seems more
appropriate to the real needs, and something as simple as a trait class
could provide the means.
