The function name connotes causing the following memory allocation(s) to fail, which is useful in its own right for testing error handling.

How is break_memory_alloc() different from debugger_break() in practical terms? IOW, if break_memory_alloc() causes a break at the next allocation, it doesn't seem any different than preceding the allocation call with debugger_break().
