I think using Perl memory allocation is a must if we are going to pass
the allocated memory to Perl functions.  At least on Windows, each
module will dynamically link to the version of malloc that the linker
saw at link time, so if we don't use Perl APIs for allocating memory,
we will most probably use a different implementation of malloc, which
might cause trouble.
