SPI_palloc might possibly be worth the trouble, but the other thing
is duplicative of the StringInfo routines, and I do not think it's
a good idea to provide duplicate ways to accomplish the same thing.
It's just more code to maintain and more things for newcomers to
learn about when trying to read someone else's code.

Also, proposed API additions without any documentation are not acceptable.
The docs addition for SPI_palloc would be substantially larger than the
code itself; is it worth the trouble?
