@live needs context sensitive analysis to get better precision as 
it tries to match up malloc with free if my understanding is 
correct. So it needs to know what exceptions can occur at each 
function call.

You could also extend @live and make it more useful with global 
flow typing of allocation source (gc vs malloc). For that you 
need inter procedural analysis.
