Right, so that the correct alloc and free functions will be used.

I also agree with you that having the function allocate the array will make it
a more convenient API as otherwise the function needs to be able to return a
"too small array" return code back and all applications need to be able to
retry with a larger.

Jernej, will you write an updated version of the patch?
