Proposal of a new C API
We uses rb_newobj() in CRuby when we allocates any object.
However, this function has no arguments, so we can not change a
internal allocate method depending klass and flags of any object.
So I propose to add following new C APIs.
- VALUE rb_newobj_of(VALUE klass, VALUE flags);
- #define NEWOBJ_OF(obj,type,klass,flags)
A patch is here.
rb_newobj_of() is named by Matz. I think it's a fitting name.
Please let me know if you have more good name.

Narihiro, thank you for reporting this issue.
Your contribution to Ruby is greatly appreciated.
May Ruby be with you.
include/ruby/ruby.h: add C APIs.
VALUE rb_newobj_of(VALUE klass, VALUE flags)
These allow to change a allocation strategy depending on klass
array.c: use new C API.
