We've done similar handling lately with for example 8c75ad43 for
plpython, and this has finished by using TopMemoryContext, so that's
the way to do. By the way plperl needs the same cleanup, and by
looking at the archives guess who did exactly that with a set of
patches not long ago:
But I did not get much feedback about those patches :)

So for now I have removed this part from the patch of this thread.
