While that is true, I think there is very little motivation to go down
that road even in Emacs's side: this glibc-malloc "issue" is just one
more nail in the unexec coffin, so even if we can find a way back we'd
still be stuck with the problem of doing unexec with address
randomization (for example), and maintenance of unexec (which has proved
less problematic than I expected, over the years, admittedly, but
remains a source of worry).
