How is calling malloc different from calling xmalloc? Neither is in
the interface defined in emacs-module.h, right?
malloc is a standard C function, xmalloc is an internal Emacs function.

Can they call functions from external libraries? (I thought allowing
that was one of the main design goals.) If so, what's the difference?
yes, sorry, I was being sloppy. Modules cannot call any Emacs C functions except those declared in emacs-module.h. Of course they can call arbitrary other library functions.
