Also, I'm not sure anyone is willing to go through all *600* mallocs

intrr at time:~/bf-cvs/blender$ egrep -rI "MEM_malloc" *|wc -l 

and construct a sane fallback for each of them failing (thus investigating
all surrounding code, the caller stack, giving appropriate UI feedback) ;)

So I guess this is really a non-issue and the discussion can be closed.

What I *do* agree on is check for NULL on special, easily handlable cases
where huge chunks of memory are to be malloced (say for "Start
fluid simulation" or "Start Render" (shadow buffers, maybe)).
