how often are you going to repeat this bullshit?
You _always_ check the return-value, as overcommitting is insane and some
hipster-crap which is anything but suckless.

Just grep the vis-sources for *alloc and guard it with if's, or write simple
alloc-wrappers as we did for sbase and ubase (emalloc, ereallocarray, ...).
