It's not the scalarized object I'm concerned about but other actions 
that may happen after the allocation point and which would never have 
occurred if the allocation threw OOME. But perhaps such actions are not 
possible under the definition of "safe" for this transformation.

But we should probably discuss this elsewhere.
