Come think of it - we don't even need callbacks here. If a pool would allow to allocate different sized chunks of memory. Then on module unmount there's already a warning for freeing
not yet empty pool, and we can even see all the leaked bits if we really want to (in like a crash dump).
So a module would just need to register such a general pool and use it for all allocations.
