I'm not exactly following.  If you have a new allocator that dominates
aset.c on all cases, why would we not simply replace aset.c with it?
Mass substitution implemented at the caller end seems like the hard way.

(Or in other words, the fact that "DefaultContextCreate" is spelled
"AllocSetContextCreate" is a bit of a historical artifact, but I do
not see why changing the spelling is a useful exercise.)
