+ * You can mark a stack variable with UNLEAK(var) to avoid it being
+ * reported as a leak by tools like LSAN or valgrind. The argument
+ * should generally be the variable itself (not its address and not what
+ * it points to). It's safe to use this on pointers which may already
+ * have been freed, or on pointers which may still be in use.
+ *
+ * Use this _only_ for a variable that leaks by going out of scope at
+ * program exit (so only from cmd_* functions or their direct helpers).
+ * Normal functions, especially those which may be called multiple
+ * times, should actually free their memory. This is only meant as
+ * an annotation, and does nothing in non-leak-checking builds.
