             Make usemallocwrap a Configure-time question. Default is yes for
             usedevel, no otherwise, but I'm expecting hints files on known
             good platforms to override this. (and known bad)

             Export PL_memory_wrap based on PERL_MALLOC_WRAP rather than
             NO_MALLOC_WRAP following Configure changes. Identical patch to
             mine supplied by Steve Hay while I was working on this.

             Unlike perl, 0 in void context isn't special cased in C :-)
             (So it warns). Tweak the no-action malloc wrap checkers to avoid
             warnings.

             hv_clear_placeholders now manipulates the linked lists directly, rather

             Comment to record why we can't clear placeholders in hsplit

             My re-implementation of hv_clear_placeholders was buggy - not sure why
             the tests still passed. Fixed.
             
             [ 22393]
             In hsplit, if a normal hash has placeholders then clear them before
             splitting. We can do this safely because Storable ensures hsplit is
             not called while it builds restricted hashes (actually any hashes)
             This change may not make things faster, but now we have the choice.

             1. Add section to perlxs.pod describing that the refcount of AVs/HVs
             returned from XSUBs through RETVAL isn't decremented as it is for
             SVs. This causes those XSUBs to leak memory and cannot be fixed
             without breaking existing CPAN modules that work around this bug.
             
             2. Fix a memory leak of that kind in POSIX::localconv.
