I had pondered this issue extensively.  The standard coding convention
in postgres is that the caller sets the memory context.  See the dblink
and plpython patches that make this happen in their own way.

I agree it would make sense that you either pass in a memory context or
always use TopMemoryContext.  I'm open to these ideas, but they did not
seem to match any existing usage.
