Making C *anything* would be a lot of work...but please note that making
C stackless doesn't buy you a lot -- I mean, it just means you'll use some
other pointer instead of the stack-pointer, and move it to a linked-list
from a resizable array. And we already talked about linked-list vs.
resizable arrays
