Now I understand what you were talking about earlier :-)

I would think the first step is making a "mem.h" header which defines
some alloc/dealloc macros (to match the gc calls) with standard
definitions, getting every other source to include that header, and
replace all instances of allocation/deallocations with the macros.

We can then replace in any memory handling we want globally.
