I will reconsider and go along with your proposal,
but I reserve the right to revisit this question ten days before release.

If at that time it's clear that wrappers have not been constructed for the
problem packages and stability _is_ a problem, I will ask for the old
allocator to be put back, and the new one moved into a separate library.
