I was thinking masking a double free such as:
/* do something */
But thinking it further, this is now a "logic" error with no repercussions whatsoever, and the fact that we eliminate explicit nullifications, makes such modification of the lib (without gnutls_free setting ptr to null) quite impossible to operate. So I no longer think this is a good idea.

It makes sense to me.
