On OS X, NSZone and CFAllocator are not the same.  NSZone is something 
inherited from NeXT.  CFAllocator is a C version of std::allocator from C++.  
CF structures that use allocators store their own reference to them, although I 
wouldn't be surprised if some of the toll-free bridged versions don't bother 
and always use malloc().
