Not really, as the backend does the memory allocation. Here again, as
with the internal character encoding: would we impose any fine-grained
user control on these implementation policies, we would reduce the set
of potential backends considerably.
(libxml2 lets 'users' define their own memory (de)allocators, but that
is a configuration choice, and I'm not sure whether we want to bind
so tightly to that.)
