	Which makes me wonder ... should we not include the BSD licensed,
valgrind remote header into our build, and use the magic traps to detect
it ? I attach the header.

	Of course - what we really want is, not all of this complex goodness

/* Change the start and end address of the stack id. */
#define VALGRIND_STACK_CHANGE(id, start, end)                     \

	But a single method:

	bool running_under_valgrind (void);
	bool running_under_memcheck (void);

	so we can switch our allocation semantics auto-magically.

	Julian - we have lots of complex stuff; how do we get the simple
boolean we want out :-)
