Yeah, there is an old bug to track this: http://bugs.python.org/issue20064 > And, for example, the "what's new in 2.5" document says: > > """ > Python’s API has many different functions for allocating memory that are > grouped into families. For example, PyMem_Malloc(), PyMem_Realloc(), and > PyMem_Free() are one family that allocates raw memory, while > PyObject_Malloc(), PyObject_Realloc(), and PyObject_Free() are another > family that’s supposed to be used for creating Python objects. > """ > > I don't think there are many extensions out there in which *object* memory > gets allocated manually, which implicitly puts a pretty clear "don't use" > marker on these functions. Should I understand that it's another good reason to make PyMem_Malloc() faster for everyone?
